'Starting School' sessions ~ June and July 2024:

If you are unsure which group your child is in, just contact us and ask. We will happily share that information with you again.


September 'Starting school' session times and dates for your child:

Each group (A, B, C or D) will attend a morning and an afternoon session in the first week.

On Friday 6th September at 2.30 pm, the whole class and their families will meet each other at the 'Teddy Bear Picnic' so that we can all get to know each other.


The Teddy Bear's Picnic:

If the weather is good, we will meet on the school field. Bring a picnic blanket if you wish and everybody is encouraged to bring their favourite teddy - students, parents and staff. We will have picnic tables, blankets and some chairs available at the picnic. If it rains, we will have an indoor picnic in the school hall. Please sign in at the office when you arrive at 2.30pm and Jo Brookman, our office administrator, will show you through. Updates and reminders will be shared by email and via our Facebook page.
