Your children will be registered in their home classes in a morning. Please note that payments to the school must now be completed via parent pay and school cannot accept cash.

After registration, year 5s will either be in Mrs Lee’s or Miss Connell’s class  and year 6s will either be in Mrs Richard’s or Ms Kane’s class for Maths, Literacy, Reading and SPaG.
