Weekly Note 2nd September 2022

2nd Sep 2022

It has been great to welcome pupils back to school this week. Pupils have settled back well and we look forward to an exciting school year. 

School Day Start Time 

Now that Covid restrictions have been eased we have reverted back to our traditional start time of 8.50am. Pupils should be in school for classes starting at 8.50am. 


If a pupil is off sick a phonecall to the school office should be made on the first day of a pupil's absence. On a pupil's return a written note explaining the absence must be given to the child's teacher. Attendance is monitored by myself at the end of each month and a note for any unaccounted for absences will be sent out. 


A reminder that Tuesday and Thursday are PE days and pupils should wear PE uniform on these days. 

Dinner Menu

The dinner menu has been attached.

If your child is ordering a meal please send a labelled envelope on Monday morning, with the exact money inside and stating the days you would like to order a school dinner. In order to help kitchen staff organise meals please send separate envelopes for siblings. Meals are priced at £2.60 per day.
