Reading Books need to be brought to school every day and read at least three times a week. This needs to be recorded in Reading Logs with a comment and signature.

At the end of the day children will be dismissed one at a time to parents/carers waiting outside the Reception entrance. If you would like to speak with an adult, please make an appointment with the class teacher.
