Reception Autumn 1 Welcome Letter


We will not be running clubs in the Autumn term as we are all settling into our new school routines. We will notify you after Christmas of the clubs we will be running in the Spring Term. 

Thank you.


We are all really looking forward to meeting the children on Monday 5th September or Tuesday 6th September at their Stay and Play visit. Each child will have their own one hour slot already sent to them. We will then welcome the children as they start their first morning at school on Wednesday 7th September.
