Head of School update

This week at school….

Welcome back everyone!!!!

It has been lovely to see all our children and parents back after the long summer holidays.  This year we were so lucky with the weather and all the staff have enjoyed listening to the children’s experiences of fun on the beach, in parks and around our lovely county spending time with family and friends. 

The children have all settled in well to their new classes and we are very proud of how they have embraced a return to learning in school so quickly.  Please checkout the class updates for more information.  

This year we will also be posting news blogs on our facebook page – our head pupils have amazed us with their journalistic prowess, have a look to see what’s going on in school each week with our live updates!

New September Opening Times – The drop off window has now changed to 8.40am – 8.50am. Our school day will still end at 3.20pm.
