School Uniform Update!
As many of you will know, from September our children will be wearing our new school uniform.
The changes are:
White shirt and a blue and yellow striped tie
V neck jumper with school logo
White shirt and blue and yellow striped tie
V-neck cardigan with school logo
The rest of the uniform stays the same…
Grey skirt / pinafore
Black school shoes
The sample sizes are in school!
A jumper and tie will cost you £10.00!
We have managed to secure this price as it has been further subsidised by school just on this occasion.
The children are excited about our mini bus and we have been thinking about how best to use it. Khloe in Reception shared her model of a museum in assembly this morning and Reception will be planning a trip to the Harris Museum in due course!
