FOREST RE-STARTS

We will be re-starting our Forest trips from week beginning 20th February 2017.

 Please could we ask that parents/carers take responsibility to:

  • Check the Forest Board each week .
  • Bring the children in good time so we can leave promptly at 9am or 2pm
  • Wear clothing appropriate to the weather, e.g. a couple of thin layers are better than one thick jumper.  We provide waterproof forest suits.
  • Please also ensure children are wearing long sleeves, even in warmer weather, to help prevent insect bites/stings etc.
  • Any parents/carers who would like to join us on a trip please sign the list on the board and we will contact you.

Many Thanks.

Open Evening -REMINDER

Dear Parents,

We are planning to hold an Open Evening from 6.00 – 7.00 p.m. on Wednesday 21st September 2016.

This will be an opportunity to look around all of the rooms and ask staff any questions you may have.  We thought this would be particularly useful for parents who have children who will be moving rooms over the Summer, but all parents are welcome!

As with Parents Evenings, we ask that you attend without your children as staff will not be available to supervise.

We hope you will join us!
