Welcome to the start of another school year. It has been really lovely to welcome your children back, and we are all looking forward to a fabulous term of learning. As you know, Year 2 is a very important year, as we have the KS1 SATs coming up in May. We will be working hard to make sure that your child is ready for these, but we cannot do this without your help. Thank you in advance for all your support – it is always greatly appreciated.
