Please bring in a change of clothes for P.E during the first week back ready for the second week when we will be helping prepare the children for changing at school.

We would like the kit to come in a named bag and we will keep it for the whole of week starting 11th June before sending it home again.

From Monday 2nd July
We will be having fun weeks at Pre-school, enjoying playing games and we have lots of special fun activities together before most of the children leave for school.
On arrival at Pre-school when you are coming across from reception can you please make sure that your child is holding your hand or walking next to you as some children have been running off around the school. Obviously this is not fair on the secondary school students and teachers who are working. Can I also ask that you try to be as quiet as possible in the area outside the Pre-school door as GCSE exams are being taken in the gym next door to us.
Please remember that it is important that you notify us if your child will be missing Pre-school. Once your child is funded it is your responsibility to ensure that your child attends their funded sessions. If your child is funded for more than the universal 15 hours you must make sure that you renew your codes before they run out.
Please feel free to come in to see me or your child’s keyperson at any time
