Welcome back

Dear Pupils and Parents,

It was lovely to welcome back all our pupils to school today. I am very excited to see what amazing successes our pupils achieve this year.

As always, I will be posting photos on this blog of all the exciting things that our pupils are getting up to so please come and visit the site often.

If you have any queries or questions about anything related to school please don't hesitate to contact your child's class teacher in the first instance. They will be more than happy to help with your concern or help direct you to someone who might be better placed to help.

For now, I wish everyone a wonderful term.

Many thanks,

Jon Hewitt
