Key Information

Class Dojo

Ask your child about their class dojos. These are points awarded for good behaviour. Sign up for our parent app with a code from your class teacher, so that you can track your child’s dojo online.

Homework

 See your child's class teacher for their login details to our home learning portal on Google Classroom.  Here you will find all of your homework for the week.

 

Clothing and Outdoor learning

We are very lucky as a school to have some amazing outdoor spaces to explore and we will be looking to take advantage of this as much as possible. Therefore, please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately for outdoor activities i.e. coats and hats when it’s cold and sun cream in the summer months.

Please ensure that all clothing (including school jumpers and cardigans) are named. That way we can return them to you should they get lost.
