Important Information


Please read with your child each night and sign their reading record.

Make sure bookbags are brought to school each day.



Please ensure you are signed up to Tapestry Learning Journal and have the app installed. We will communicate class related messages to you through Tapestry, as well as sharing information and images about your child’s learning.



We ask for a voluntary contribution of £1 per week. This ensures that we can pay for additional resources such as baking ingredients.



Please make sure that your child comes to school dressed in their outdoor PE kit every Thursday. Remove any earrings before coming to school.


Nappies and toilet training

If your child wears nappies or pull ups, please ensure we have plenty of nappies/ pull ups and wipes in school. If your child is potty training, please ensure you send in plenty of spare clothes.

Learning at Home

Find activities to support your child’s learning whilst our children are self isolating. These activities are also available through your Tapestry app, where you can message staff and record your child’s achievements throughout their period of isolation. If you are experiencing any difficulties, please do not hesitate to contact us through the usual channels.
