Please support us to keep our school family safe by:
Observing 2 metre distancing from other adults when in the school grounds.
Phone or email the school office in the first instance, rather than visiting.
Wearing a face covering in our playground at drop off and pick up times.
If you have to enter our building please wear a face covering.
Do not allow children to bring toys in from home.
PE kits to be worn to school on PE days.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries. We are hereto support and help.

The December Event

Despite all, it is NOT cancelled! While we are still keeping our pupils and staff safe in their bubbles, we are busy planning lots of exciting activities and events over the next term to celebrate the festive season and still make it as magical and joyful at school as we can. More information will follow with dates for your diaries for lunch, parties and other events. We have some surprises in store!!
