Road Safety reminder
As mentioned previously at the end of last term, we have had some concerns raised by local residents with regards to car traffic and parking during school times. Please find below a letter from Ms Smyth with regards to this; we urge parents and carers to drive with concideration and alertness for the safety of all members of our community.

FoLS fundraise for the school library
Reading is important and at the heart of encouraging children to read is the school library - a place full of facts and dreams, ideas and fantasy, history and future bringing a young person's imagination to life and their understanding to achievement.
The PTA of Leytonstone School wants to make sure that our school library has the books to stimulate and motivate our children to aspire to be their best, to enjoy the journey and to succeed. The average price of a book is £9, so every penny donated will help us refill the library shelves and support our children for the years to come.
To make a donation, please visit justgiving.com/folslovebooks; for more information on FoLS, please visit their page here.
