Dear Parents, Carers and CommunityThe new playground morning routine seems to be working well. Thank you for your support. School starts at 8.45am and latecomers must be
signed in in the office before entering school. As a school we are duty bound to monitor lateness and report consistent lateness to the local authority. Please will you help us to keep disruption to a minimum by ensuring children arrive between 8.30 and 8.45 am.
There will be an Artsreach event held at school on 2 December in the form of a puppet theatre. Tickets will need to be purchased for this event. Please also see the link below.
HOME SCHOOL AGREEMENT
As you know the links between home and school are crucial in enabling us to work together as partners in order to support all children in aspects of school life. We will be sending a Home School Agreement home with your child on Monday. Please read it and it will need to be signed and returned at parent consultation evenings. We ask parents to read and sign this agreement on an annual basis in order to make our home school links strong and do the best for our children.
NEW! PARENT INFORMATION SESSIONS!
We have published the dates below for our parent information sessions. These will replace the Parent Forums.
