+ Please can you ensure that you write your child's name in all pieces of clothing.

+ Please communicate with the teachers and teaching assistants, we are here to help and want to support your child as they settle into school. If you would like to speak to a member of staff, we can arrange this at an appropriate time. Alternatively, please use Tapestry to contact us.

+ Please look at Tapestry to view your child's online journal. You will be able to see all the fantastic learning they have been doing in school.
