Parent Newsletters, Information and Resources

To help our parents keep up to date on our weekly plans, news and events, we send out a weekly newsletter. In case of any problems receiving this, copies will always be added to the link below.


There are also links to many fact sheets and web links for support, advice and general information.

We've also included a link to a learning from home sections which we developed during lock down. It contains lots of ideas and activities you may like to try and home including baking, crafts and tips to support your child with their learning.
