Reminders for Summer Term 2024

Each day, children will need suitable uniform according to the weather, water bottles containing water only, healthy snacks for break, reading book and reading diary every day. Books will be changed when needed. Children should not wear jewellery to school apart from stud earrings.


Just a reminder that children will not need to bring in additional stationery or pencil cases as this equipment will be provided and that toys should be left at home.

Children are to come to school in their PE kit and trainers on these days to avoid the need to change in school.
