Important information for Parents/Carers

The last term of the school year! It's lovely to see everyone back and restrictions easing slightly. Handwashing and hand sanitising will continue as will the staggered dismissal times. Many thanks to Parents/Carers for dropping off/collecting pupils in a quick and efficent way and for wearing masks. It helps keep everyone safe and feel safer too.

Thank you also to the many Parents/Carers, Staff and Pupils who gave up their time during the Easter Holidays to make a significant difference to our school grounds.

Huge thanks to Parents/Carers for your generosity on Garden Day (Friday 23rd April). We were truly blown away by your kindness. It was lovely to have the sun shining down on us and every class out planting. It has made a huge difference to our school grounds. All classes have also been provided with materials where every pupil will plant their own sunflower. We're looking forward to measuring the magnificent sunflowers over the coming months!

Thank you for your continued support. smiley
