We would like to thank you all for complying with 

bringing your children into school. This keeps all our children and staff safe. 

P1 and P2 children please enter and leave again through the P1 door. The outside gate will be locked at 9.15am.

P3-P7 children please enter through the main door. 

Please note that no one should be coming in through any of the toilets.

If you wish or need to speak to your child’s class teacher, please call into the General Office to make an appointment. 

Allergy Advice

A reminder to advise you that we have 

children in school who suffer from a severe 

allergy to nuts. Children with this condition 

may have a severe reaction, which could prove fatal if they come into contact with nuts. 

Consequently, I would ask that no nuts or related products (e.g. kinder bueno, nutella spreads, peanut butter etc.)  are brought into school for your child’s break or packed lunch. Your agreement with this and compliance could prevent a life threatening situation developing. I am sure you will appreciate the reasons for making this request and trust that you will give it your full co-operation.

Car Park Safety/Keeping Our Children Safe

Once again we would like to remind everyone to drive safely through the school car park especially on these dark, rainy days! When picking children up please park in appropriate spaces and leave a clearance for traffic to keep flowing carefully! Do not park on the zebra crossings and be cautious of children 

using them! When parking on the Harbour Road, please leave spaces clear for children to cross with care with the Patrol Officer.



Book Fair

Our annual Book Fair will be on 5th, 6th and 7th March. More details to follow.
