The Westborough School

Welcome to class 1JF

Your class teachers are

Miss Jenkinson and Miss Forbes

We also have extra help from our Teaching Assistant

Lucy Attaby

and our Learning Support Assistant

Caroline Berry.

We have PE on

Mondays and Thursdays

Your child must wear their PE kit to school on this day, as they are unable to change in class or the changing rooms. 

They are able to wear joggers, leggings or tights under their shorts on PE days, just in case the weather is not good. If they wear their jumper as usual they will be warm enough. 

Hello and welcome back to 1JF, I hope that you had a lovely half term break.
