We have been informed that infant school children have been misusing the water fountains outside the junior school whilst waiting for siblings to come out of school at the end of the day. Please keep your child with you are all times when in the school grounds.
Please check that your child's uniform has the correct name in it. Sometimes the children take home someone else's uniform. If this happens please return it to school as soon as possible, so it can be reunited with the correct owner. Thank you!
