Dear Parents,

I'd like to personally thank you for being so supportive with our arrangements for the children's return to school. The start of term has been very positive and the school is full of the sound of happy, engaged children which has been so lovely to hear after five months.

We have listened to your feedback about drop-off times in particular and have tweaked these so that there will now be a window of 15 minutes for you to drop off your child, please ensure you social distance with other families when on site and leaving the school.  Please refer to the letter on the Parent Portal for more information.

We understand parking outside the school is challenging so we hope that the change in times will be helpful, but please can we remind you to park considerately on the roads around the school. 

Have a lovely weekend!


Valerie Elliott
