Welcome back! We are so happy to have you back in school! 

Important things to remember:

  1. Your child needs to read at home every night and bring their book bag into school every day so an adult in school can hear them read.
  2. Your child needs a P.E. kit in school every day and can be taken home at the end of every half term. This must include pumps or velcro trainers for outside games. They will get changed for PE in school so must come in their full school uniform on PE days: Tuesday and Wednesday. 
  3. Your child needs to bring in a school book bag not a backpack or rucksack due to minimal space and health and safety issues.
  4. Your child needs a coat with a hood every day.
  5. The Year 2 school day starts at 8:45am everyday and it is vital your child is in at this time.
  6. The Year 2 school day finishes at 3:15pm.
