I am very pleased to welcome back all our pupils after a very long summer break. It was lovely to see so many smiling faces on their first day back in school, the pupils seemed very happy to see their friends and new teachers. I hope everyone is ready to work hard and put their best efforts into school life as…Together we will make a difference!

MEET THE TEACHERS
On Monday 15th September you will have the opportunity to meet your child’s class teacher (Year 1 to 6 only) which will take place at 3:15 p.m. If you have more than one child in school it would be advisable to see the eldest child’s class teacher first. Please go directly to your child’s class where the teacher will be there to greet you.
