From Wednesday 21 September to Friday 23 September next week we will have our official school photographers Pret-a-Portrait in school. They will be taking individual student photographs for all students.
Your child will be involved in this round of photos and so we ask that you ensure they are smartly dressed and wearing appropriate school uniform on Wednesday 21 September to Friday 23 September.
- Please ensure that your child has the correct school uniform. In particular please ensure your child is wearing black shoes. Girls should wear plain white socks and boys should wear black or grey socks. You can review the school’s uniform policy here.
- Please remember to send in and label your child’s snack box and water bottle, as well as a hat during the hot weather.
- If for any reason your child is unable to take part in PE, please send a signed message in your child’s communication book. Your child still needs to bring in their PE kit to enable them to participate as a coach, an official or to give feedback.
