21st September 2018

Hello everyone,

Well the weather this week has certainly shown us that autumn is just around the corner. Please ensure that you send your child with a coat from now on and label it so that it can be returned to them if they leave it anywhere in school.

I am really looking forward to seeing many of you at next week’s parents’ evenings. Please make sure that you register over the weekend if you haven’t already done so — there is information below on how to do that.

Have a super weekend everyone!

Sue Simmons, Headteacher.
