More details will follow for specific events, but don’t forget to check your child’s planner, book bags and the school website for updates. This term, we intend to move towards being a ‘paperless’ office, and will shortly be asking for your e-mail details so that we can send out all letters electronically. This will help the environment, the school budget and will also help to ensure that communication is even more effective.

I am very much looking forward to meeting you all and sharing your child’s learning journey over the coming months!

Best wishes,
Mark Westmoreland
