Please ensure that all clothing and bags are labelled clearly.


We add photos to tapestry every 2 weeks and also put important information and requests on there. If you have any problems logging on and accessing this, please see a member of staff. Feel free to like and add comments about the photos and also upload any exciting or special things that your child has been doing at home.
