P6 pupils – As the school will be closed on Thursday 3rd May due to the local elections, the children who are due to bring their bikes to school that day (Groups 1 and 2) should bring them on Tuesday 1st May instead to ensure that all groups have the same number of on-road, playground and theory lessons.
