Early Years play area
Please take a look at the plans for the fantastic redevelopment of the Early Years play area, which are available in the school reception. The PTA&F are kindly funding these improvements, so please watch out for and support the upcoming money raising activities.

School Uniform
Just to remind parents that the full new school uniform is compulsory from September 2015. Uniform can be ordered from www.schooltrends.co.uk. Ties can be purchased from the school office.

Parking
A polite request to all parents dropping off and collecting children by car.
Please could we ask parents to be considerate to our neighbours and not block (or park on) driveways, preventing access to properties around the school.
Unfortunately, we have received complaints from residents about some such incidents. Local residents have been advised to contact the police if this continues.
