A warm welcome to our PP1 parents this year. Please meet us in the classroom to discover what your child will be doing at school this year. It's an important stage for your child’s learning, and fun one too, mainly learning through play-based activities. Your child will also be learning about routine and developing early literacy and maths skills, learning about the world around them and learning social skills. There'll be plenty of time for questions over a cup of tea or coffee.
PP4 Parents’ Coffee Morning. This year, the final year of KS1, will see your child being encouraged to work more independently. Please join us to find out about the curriculum and the learning goals ahead and how you can support your child at home.
