A big, warm welcome to you all!      

I am really looking forward to an exciting and fun packed year.

I'm sure we will all have a great time.

Just a few things to note:

  • PE will take place on Monday afternoon so could you please ensure all the children have their PE kit in school
  • Fresh water and milk are provided each day and your child can access drinks any time during the day, so no water bottles are needed
  • The home link book should be kept in your child's plastic wallet and returned to school daily
  • Could you please ensure your child's purse, uniform and PE kit are clearly labelled with their name on
