As part of our Covid-19 risk management, teachers will not be able to meet with parents as flexibly as we once did. Please see the Contact Us tab for information about how to make an appointment to come into school.
Alternatively, you can also get a message to staff via Class Dojo, but please allow 24hrs for staff to reply. Urgent messages e.g. within a school day, should be left with the office via phone or email.
Please see your child's class page to meet the teaching team who work with the children.
