We hope that you can join us each week for our class celebration, when you are invited to share and celebrate learning and see our certificates and rewards being presented.

You are welcome to join us for Welcome Worship. These special worship sessions are led by the children once per term. Join us in the Chapel after drop off for some refreshments and the children will come along to lead worship - it's a great way to catch up with other parents in the class too. Our Welcome Worship dates can be found in our diary dates.

We welcome parental involvement in the life of our school. If you are able to visit the school or help in any way, please contact your child’s class teacher.
