Well Being Corner
Welcome to our first Wellbeing Newsletter. This newsletter will be sent on a termly basis. The newsletter is a form of communication between school and parents/carers and hopes to provide information, shared resources and signposting. Your voice is important – there will be a parent online survey to find what you would find really helpful in future Wellbeing Newsletters.
It has been fantastic to welcome back all pupils after a long lockdown. Attending school every day and on time gives our children the best opportunities to develop their potential to the full. Please ensure your child is in school and on time. If you need further support to achieve this, please contact Mrs Troy at school. email@example.com
