Today will see your child receive their annual school report.  It is important that you collect the report from your child’s teacher please, as they will not be given to your child.  Please complete the form showing that you have read the report and if you would like to discuss this further.  There will be an opportunity to discuss the report with class teachers the week beginning Monday 13th July.


Over the forthcoming weeks work to rebuild the shelter wall in the small playground will commence.  To ensure the safety of our children the small playground for playtimes will not initially be used. There will be limited disruption to our school day.  We ask that everyone observes the signage and pedestrian access during this time on Clive Road and Archer Road as there will be partial and complete pavement closures.  We appreciate your co-operation with this.
