Letter to Parents 20 December 2019
Learning Block 4
Another learning block has whizzed by with lots of crafts and festive fun! We also extend a huge EMW welcome to our new children and parents who have joined us for the first time this block.
Primary School Applications
If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016 they will be due to transfer to primary school in September 2020. Places are not issued automatically and an application must be submitted online to Milton Keynes Council at www.milton-keynes.gov.uk/schooladmissions
The deadline is Tuesday 15 January 2020. Please note that the application link above is now live so to avoid disappointment apply for The Premier Academy today!
Thank you to everyone who returned the recent questionnaire. We were delighted by the results and more than that, we were extremely appreciative of the suggestions. We believe in transparency and open honest conversation so with this in mind we are sharing the complete results of the questionnaire and our responses / intentions relating to the what we could do better section. Please see attached.
Once again, thank you to all who took the time to help us to improve.
