New Starters

Update: 19/7/23

We hope you all have a fabulous summer! Please see below for a reminder of key information for the start of the school year:

The children's first day will be Monday 4th September.

The first two days (Monday and Tuesday) will be part-time days (8.45am until 11.30am).

On Wednesday 6th September, the children will be in school from 8.45am until 1.15pm, including a school lunch.

From Thursday 7th September onwards, it will be full-time (8.45am until 3.15pm).

If your child is using the before and after school club service, they will be brought to the classrooms in the morning and collected after school by staff from Robert Miles Club.

Please refer to you 'Starting School' brochure, which was in the transition pack. This provides lots more information regarding the school day and uniform details, etc.

We're looking forward to seeing you all on Monday 4th September.
