Class 6 are our Year 6 children. They are taught by Mrs Swankie and their teaching assistant is Mr Kingaby.
Welcome to the start of a new academic year. We are looking forward to a successful and happy year.
Your children are very important to us and we are committed to providing a happy, safe and fun environment in which to nurture the children to reach their full, rounded potential. Please feel welcome to come to talk to us about any concerns you may have, ask questions or to share any information you may feel we need to know, in order to for us to work in close partnership for your child.
Thank you very much for the contributions of party food. We had a great time bowling. The children made very snazzy elf party hats.
