Spring 2

We start back on Monday 8th March with our routines looking the same as they did in the Autumn. Children can start arriving from 8.30am at pour classroom door (coming into the playground through the small gate and parents exiting through the car park so we keep a one way flow of people). All children should have arrived at school by 8.55am. We will be in uniform as normal, except for on Monday's when you need to come in PE kit (warmly dressed as we may be outside for PE).
