Dear Parents and Carers

Welcome back! I hope that your child has enjoyed the first week and that they have had fun catching up with friends and staff this week. A couple of brief updates to end the week:



This has been brilliantly worn this week – please thank your young people. Whilst I recognise the heat has provided us some challenges, the uniform has been worn excellently this week and I would like everyone to keep it up. A reminder please on a couple of outstanding issues:

Pupils have worn the new uniform with pride – well done.
