Whole School Letters
Parents’ Evenings are going to be held on Tuesday 19th March & Wednesday 20th March. Please make an appointment to see your child's teacher by returning the slip. The meetings will be held in your child’s classroom. We would prefer children not to come back to school during the parents’ interviews but we do realise this is difficult for some families. However, parents will be responsible for their children if they are brought back into school as no adult supervision is available during this time. If your child has siblings in school and you would like the appointments close together, please indicate this.
