Working together

If you have any knowledge or experience of some of our Topics and would like to come in and give a talk or take part in a workshop this year we would love to hear from you. Come and get involved!


Early to bed

Please make sure that the children get at least 11 hours unbroken sleep every night. Plenty of sleep, a healthy diet and regular exercise will help the children get the most out of school.

It may be a good idea to remove mobile phones, computers, games and TVs from their bedrooms on school nights.

Many thanks for all your continued support and please do speak to me after school if you have any questions at all.smiley
