Other useful information:

Please make sure that the children's reading records are signed by an adult after they have read at home and brought to school everyday.

Our P.E. day is on a Thursday. Please come to school wearing your school P.E. kit. You do not need to bring a change of clothes - we shall stay in P.E. kit all day. This must consist of black shorts with a black school P.E. t-shirt OR a plain black t-shirt (warmer weather) and suitable footwear. During the colder months, plain black joggers and a plain black jumper or hoody can be worn. Please note, under current guidance we are unable to support with the tying of shoelaces. Suitable footwear must be worn to participate in P.E. but please ensure that your child is able to manage putting them on/off independently - slip on or velcro only please.

Thank you for your support.
