What a fantastic start our new year 1 children have had!


Despite having been away for so long, they have settled beautifully into their new class and are keen, happy and working hard already. They have listened so carefully to the guidance on how to move safely around the school and within their classrooms and, although there are some big changes, they have adapted wonderfully showing real maturity. Their behaviour has been impeccable and parents should be feeling very proud.
