A Message from Mrs Marshall (Headteacher) (06.01.21)
Hello to everyone, it's Mrs Marshall here.
As you know, we are all working in a different way now and I just wanted to wish you all well as we go forward together.
We will, of course, miss all of the families that are learning, working or are furloughed at home, but we know that you will be keeping in touch with your child's class teacher. The school office is open if you need us.
Keep safe and keep smiling!
