Welcome back to school

1st September 2023

Dear parents/carers,

Welcome back:

We are looking forward to welcoming all our children back to school on Wednesday 6th September 2023 and hope that our children are looking forward to the start of the new academic year. A very warm welcome to our new F2 families. We are very much looking forward to working with you over the next 7 years.

School Uniform & PE kits:

Children can return in their summer uniform as it appears that the sun is now deciding to put in an appearance since its disappearance over the summer! PE kits are not needed for the first three days back to school and we will then let parents know which days your child should wear their PE kit on by the end of this week. If the weather continues to be warm, please ensure that your child has a labelled sunhat and has applied sun lotion before coming to school. 

Punctuality & term dates:

Please remember that all children should be in school by 8:50am. The gates will open as usual at 8:40am until 8:50am.

The term dates for 2023-2024 have been previously distributed to parents but are also available via our website:


Children should be in school every day and holidays in term time will not be authorised and may be subject to a fixed penalty fine. 

Homework for Y1-Y6:

Homework will commence on Friday 22nd September 2023. However in the meantime, we would still like children to be reading at home.

Google Classroom:

We will be working on moving all the children into their new classes and setting up a new Google classroom space. We will update parents when this has been completed so that you will be able to start accessing Google classroom again for children in Years 1-Year 6.

Parking: Please can I remind all parents that it is vital that they park with care and consideration in the local area. Please don't block the driveways of our neighbours and please can parents not park opposite the school as this means that families can cross safely.

Newsletter: The first newsletter of the academic year will be sent out next week.

We look forward to seeing all our families on Wednesday 6th September 2023.

Thank you for your continued support,

Kind regards,

Mrs McAleny
