Head Teacher’s Message
Welcome back to our new spring term. On behalf of the staff we would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope that 2018 is a good one for our whole school community.
Our teachers have lots of interesting activities planned for this term and hope that you will enjoy hearing what children have been working on at consultation meetings, and will support them with their homework and reading outside of school.
