Taking the next step in life can often be scary and lead to a mixture of emotions including, worry, excitement, fear and apprehension. Last week our children had the opportunity to spend the afternoons in their new classrooms meeting their new teachers to help them prepare for the changes in September 2016. During the afternoon they participated in a wide variety of activities...

A huge thank you to Mrs Sharif (now known as Sharp-minded Sharif) and Miss Leckenby whose...
