Reporting Conferences:
In Week 8 (Thursday 7th Dec) and Week 9 (Tuesday 12th Dec) we will be holding reporting conferences for those children who are scheduled for either a milestone or interim report.  If your child is due for their conference you will receive a conference note confirming this and giving you the online booking details. Please do not make a booking for a conference if you have not received a reporting letter.
Hats and sunblock:
It is compulsory for children to wear a uniform hat at school this term. Please ensure your child has a clearly named hat. We are unable to allow children to play outside if they do not have this protection from the sun. If you wish your child to have sunblock please ensure that it is applied before school, and that your child knows how to re-apply it when necessary during the day. We really promote sun safety and encourage the children to find a shady place to eat their lunch and play when outside.
Kind Regards,
Year 0-2 Team.
