Good afternoon everyone,

NEW CLASSES 2018-19

We were delighted to have the opportunity to meet our new Reception children and parents this week and welcome them into our school community as the children visited their classroom.

WARM WEATHER

The children have really enjoyed the sunny weather over the last few weeks. Please note, we are unable to apply sun cream to children during the day. We would therefore recommend you apply plenty of sun cream before they leave for school. Can we also recommend children bring a sun hat - please ensure their name is clearly written inside. Thank you.
