Psalm 19 v 1 The heavens declare the glory of God
It was lovely to see so many of you at the Parents’ evenings this week. Teachers do appreciate the opportunity to touch base with parents about their child’s work and progress. Do take to heart any suggestions that your child’s class teacher suggested you can be doing with your child at home as part of our three way partnership in securing the best possible progress for your child/ren. If you were not able to attend, please make an appointment for after half term.

Holy Trinity’s Harvest Service
It was great to have some Curzon pupils singing at Captain Peter’s Harvest Service last Sunday. Many thanks to the families for coming – it’s so lovely to have the church and school come together in this way. Watch out for any future school and church together events.
Poppies will be on sale as usual in the playground after half term. As is our custom, we will have a Remembrance assembly for the children on Friday 9 November in the morning followed by a minute’s silence. It’s lovely if the children can wear a poppy for this.
Thank you from Wycombe Homeless connection
Wycombe Homeless have asked us to pass on their gratitude for the Harvest Festival food donations.
‘Thank you for thinking of Wycombe Homeless Connection, we appreciate your kindness in trying to make a difference’
