Afternoon session begins.

It is important that your child arrives on time and develops the habit of being punctual. Anyone arriving after 9.00 a.m. is registered as late and will be taken to their class by a member of staff to minimise disruption to the class. If you know that your child will be late and they require a school lunch could you please telephone the school so that one can be ordered.
