Reminder re dismounting bicycles, etc
In the interest of everyone’s safety, all cyclists (adults, students and siblings) should dismount from their bicycles at the gates to the school grounds.  Please also note that scooters, rollerblades or Heelys are not permitted on school grounds. Cycling is also not permitted on school grounds. We would greatly appreciate your support in this matter.

Meeting with Teachers
All questions/queries re school should be directed initially to the class teacher. Please contact the school secretary to make an appointment. (For safety reasons it is not possible for class teachers to meet with parents without an appointment as supervision arrangements have to be put in place. For the same safety reasons, teachers cannot take or make phone calls during class time). Parents of Infant children may be able to have a quick informal word with the class teacher when collecting their child at home time.
