We have reached the end of our first half term and what a busy but fantastic term it has been. Thank you to all the pupils, staff and parents for their continued support. We are looking forward to next term and all that it will bring.
Thank you to all the parents who have attended parent consultations this week. Remember we have an open door policy in school and if parents ever need to speak to class teachers just call in, speak to Dawn and she will inform the class teacher.
