Snack Money – please ensure snack money (£1 per week) is paid on a Monday in a labelled envelope. Snack is an important time of our day and we serve fresh fruit, milk/water and other healthy treats. Snack can be paid for in advance either termly or half termly.

Forest School – at the beginning of each term parents will receive a letter detailing their child’s Forest School sessions. Please ensure children are appropriately dressed and bring their school uniform to change into after the session. As Mr Williams, our Forest School Leader says “There is no such thing as bad weather only wrong clothing!”

P.E. Sessions – please ensure your child has a PE Kit in school – plain white t-shirt and shorts (preferably black or navy blue). Kits can remain in school for the half term in your child’s locker. Every item of clothing should be labelled!!!!
