Fulbourn Primary School

Dare to Discover

11th February 2022

Don’t miss this week...

  • Parent event dates for the rest of this year
  • Teaching Assistant vacancy
  • Fulbourn’s Got Talent!

As we look optimistically to the year ahead, one of our priorities is to re-establish opportunities for all of you to visit the school and share in your children’s learning in lots of different ways.  Your feedback tells us that you have missed being invited into school and we have certainly missed being able to welcome you.  We also know that there are some parents of our current reception and year 1 children who have never had an opportunity to see the inside of our wonderful school.  

 

Below is a list of exciting events we have planned, including the return of Family Assemblies, parent workshops and school tours.  We have tried to give lots of notice and we are looking forward to welcoming as many of you as possible into school.
