Key Information

Hello everyone. It was lovely to speak to the parents today of our new starters who are joining us in September. I hope the children enjoy watching the videos below with you. 

We all can't wait to meet you. 

We have added a "All about me" booklet you can have a go at doing before we start school. 

Take care and stay safe.
