Good Afternoon Parents & Guardians
We hope that you all had a lovely Summer Holiday.
Welcome back to all of the children and a special welcome to those who have joined us in Reception.
We are so impressed how well everyone has settled in and we hope you have enjoyed your first two days with us.
We have had a few instances where rucksacks have been brought into school after the Summer Break. Please can we remind parents that children are ONLY able to bring into school their Book Bags and lunch box (if applicable).
Please can children bring a named water bottle containing water only. There will be opportunities throughout the day for refilling them.
Please see the table below for PE Days.
Children are to come into school in their PE Kit for the day. As a reminder, the PE kit is a red t-shirt, black leggings/shorts/jogging bottoms.
T-shirts are available via Decostitch.
There will be two days of PE per week for all years.
PE lessons commence next week.
