Message to parents

We were so excited to see all the children back in our school. We had a lovely start of the day with the children line up beautifully in the playground.

We will continue to work on building the relationships and setting the routine.

Thank you for supporting your child at home and for staying positive in these difficult times.

How do I apply for a place?

For Early Learning and Childcare places, enrolment week commences Monday 8 February and concludes on Friday 12 February 2021.
