Week 14

Dear Parents, Carers and Children,

This is to be our last week of home learning and what an experience it has been. This is certainly an era in all of our lives that we will not forget. On Friday, we break up for the Summer Holiday. There will be information about starting school in September so please ensure that this has been read so that you know what time the children are starting school and which gate they need to enter. These plans have been well though over and we need every family to follow them in September. Until then, we wish you a happy holiday.
