Some Reminders

Please ensure that ALL your children’s clothing is named, including trousers, skirts and shirts. When the children get changed for PE it is hard for them to find the right white shirt if it is not named.

Please also ensure that the children have a named water bottle in school every day.


Check out our new 'Forest School' web page.
