All parents/Carers are invited into school for Footloose Friday events.  You will be able to view your child’s/children’s work and are invited to share their achievements outside of school.  This session we have two special, themed events for parents to get involved with their children. Please observe the 3.10 p.m. finish time so that children can be dismissed promptly at 3.15 p.m.

A separate Class Assembly Calendar will be issued inviting you in for your child’s class assembly.
