We recognise that this will be a challenging but rewarding year for your child. We will be encouraging resilience, independence and being the best we can be, in a warm, caring environment. To make this challenging year successful, good behaviour will be paramount and we hope you will support us with this.
We are out in the playground every day before school. If you have any concerns, please Dojo us and we will get back to you. We encourage you to use this facility as a way of communicating with us. We will also use this as a way of sharing the children’s achievements with you.
