Just a few reminders

To my lovely parents, just to remind you that BOOK BAGS come in on a Friday and will go home on a Monday.

If your child wants to bring their OWN SNACK in it must be a healthy choice and have their name on it please. School snack is available and payment is via School Gateway.

Children will need a COAT now the weather is changing.

PE days are Wednesday and Friday where the children come to school with their PE kits on. 


Thank You 

Mrs Bentley


 

 

Home Learning 

Please see our Home Learning section for children that are not able to attend school. These activities  and tasks should be completed at home if your child is unable to attend school due to COVID.
