Dear Parents/Carers,

Please find this week’s updates and reminders below:

Mobile Phones

Just a quick reminder that children should not bring in mobile phones to school, unless in exceptional circumstances, which will need to be arranged in discussion with the class teacher.

Juniors – starting time

Please note that the Junior gates are open at 8:35am.  Children should only arrive after this time.  If they need to come to School earlier, then they will need to be booked in to Breakfast club on the Futurestars website www.futurestarscoaching.co.uk.

Junior Lost Property

We have a number of un-named coats in the lost property. Please come and have a look through if your child’s coat is missing.  Parents will be welcome to take any if they are not claimed. We also have lots of un-named PE hoodies to be claimed.

Used Stamps

We are still collecting used stamps for the Little People Charity.  Please place any used stamps you have in the box on top of the red post box in the lobby outside main reception.  Thank you.
