National Express Assembly

Dear Parents/ Carers,


This Wednesday, Reception, Year 1, 2 and 3 will have a visit from National Express. They are sending one of their drivers in to read a book called, "The Wonderful Bus Drivers of the West Midlands". A female driver will be coming in to talk about her job, and to break down stereotypes that children might have around bus drivers being men. This is in recognition that it is Women's Day on Thursday.


National Express have told us that there might be a film crew coming with them to film some of the assembly for local news, and take pictures for the local media.

Some of you have previously told us that you do not want your child to be filmed or photographed, but we don't want them to miss out on this experience unnecessarily. If you have previously said no to being filmed, a member of the office staff will ring you tomorrow to check whether you are happy for them to participate in this event.


I really hope this will be an enjoyable experience for all our children in Reception, Year 1, 2 and 3. If you have any questions about this event, please feel free to speak to Mrs Kirby, or email her at - Put FAO Mrs Kirby in the subject.


Best wishes,

Mrs Seymour
