Welcome Back

We were delighted to welcome all our pupils back this morning.  It is always so good to see everyone after the summer break.

We have sent out lots of letters today – sorry!  These have come as paper copies so please check your child’s diary.   Copies of these letters will also be on the school blog.

The Parent Council have been busy in the holidays!  They have bought and assembled some playground furniture.  It has been well used today!  I think all the children would agree that it is great to have some new play equipment to use.  The nursery children had a great time on the Pirate Ship sailing to Fairyland to find the treasure!
