Class Information


Book bags

Please could book bags be sent into school on a Thursday and new books will be sent home on a Friday along with key words and any home activities.


Snack money

We ask parents for a contribution of £1.50 per week towards the cost of snack. The children have a healthy snack every day e.g,  fruit, yogurts, cheese and crackers, cereal and toast. The money also goes towards the cost of additional food for celebrations and parties.



Please could Reception pupils come to school dressed in their P.E Kit every Friday. This could take place inside or outside so please make sure your child is wearing trainers.


Starting good attendance patterns from an early age in Nursery and continuing throughout Primary School will help your child later on in their life. 


Try your best to be an 'Attendance Hero'.
