The School Day

The school day starts at 08:45. This means children need to be in school BEFORE 08:45 in order to make the most of their learning. If your child walks to school on their own, make sure they leave with plenty of time to get to school; and remind them to hurry!

Parents Evening

Thank you to  all parents who attended. If you make an appointment, please make sure you come to school as this is a very important chance to find out how your child is doing in school and what they need to do to improve. It also respects the teachers’ time.

Cycle Team

Another successful race, at Hackney Downs, for our cyclists. Some personal best performances and a load of top five performances from novice racers. Picture next week.
