REMINDERS:

If you wish your child to have milk every day an order form is available from the office and as usual a final plea to please label all uniform clearly. PE is on a Monday and Friday the children must have kit in schools on these days.

If there are any questions or queries please do not hesitate to ask.

Yours faithfully
