Dear Parents and Carers,
Whilst it’s ‘a little blowy’ outside, the sun is shining, and I hope you can enjoy a relaxing and happy weekend. Thank you for continuing to offer the school your support – it really does mean a great deal to the staff who are working so hard to ensure our pupils are safe, happy and achieving.

A plea to support our dress code (Mr Harvey and Mrs Watson)
All staff are aiming to keep windows and doors open in classrooms to support good ventilation and we know this can mean the rooms can sometimes be cold. When the weather warms up, we’ll be asking all pupils to remove outer clothing layers unless they display the school logo. For now though, please encourage your child to wear an item of their dress code – even if it’s under a coat to keep them warm. Your support with this is gratefully received.
