Welcome to Year 1

Over the coming year we will be continuing to support, encourage and promote the children’s emotional development and improve their independence and self-awareness as well as continuing to improve their reading, writing and mathematical ability.

Here are some things you can do that will support your child in school for the coming year:-

  • Ensure the correct school uniform is worn and LABELLED.
  • Ensure the correct PE kit is in school
  • Support homework as appropriate and have it returned on time.
  • Read with your child at least 3 times a week and sign the reading record 3 times.
