We were delighted, despite the snow, to host the North Suffolk Primary Boccia Tournament 2017/18 today.

Parents and Carers Get Together
Just to remind you that the next Beccles Group Parents and Carers Get Together is at Butterflies Centre, Beccles on Tuesday 27th June at 1pm.
We are hopeful that a few more parents and carers will join us this month at this group as there has been a low take up. Without greater support we may not be able to continue to provide an offsite group in future.
On Thursday 6th July at 1pm it would be lovely to have as many of you as possible join us at The Ashley School. We have invited parents and carers of pupils who are new to our school. Maybe you could offer some tips to support them during the move to The Ashley School from another school.
Why not come and welcome our new parents and carers, or just meet up with other parents and carers, whilst you enjoy a relaxed afternoon. It would be lovely to see you all.
