Welcome back everyone! Please remember not to arrive too early for school to avoid congestion on the pavements around the school. P1 and 2 parents, please come into the playground, let your child line up and then leave. P3-7 parents, your child can come straight into the playground and will be supported in their bubbles by staff so you can leave straight away too. Everyone has made a fabulous start and we are so happy to all be back together! Thank you all for your support.
So here we are at then end of the school year. The strangest end to a school year we’ve ever had. Thank you so much for all of the photos that have been sent to me over the course of the lockdown. They have brought a smile to my face and I hope have made you all feel connected. Take some time to look at our wonderful community! We can’t wait to see you in August and hope you have a safe, healthy and happy holiday. You all rock!
