Please remember...


All children need spare clothes from time to time. Please send in a bag with Spare clothes in it, this can stay in school. Children in Reception need PE kit as well in a separate bag.


All children have a home school communication book for you to continue their learning at home. These are sent out every Friday and should be returned to your child’s class teacher on Tuesday.

ALL clothes and belongings should have their name on the label e.g lunchboxes, water bottles, jumpers, coats and shoes.


All children need a bottle of water for the classroom with your child’s name on it. This should be separate from their lunch drink.


Weekly Pound fund: Please could you continue to send in £1.00 each week so we can buy extra things that can make learning exciting. 


Thank you for your ongoing support smiley
