Welcome back to term 2. As usual this is a very busy term in the lead up to Christmas. As the weather turns from warm drizzle to cold rain / snow, it is advisable that children bring a warm waterproof jacket to school every day until the warmer weather returns.

Playground supervision
May I remind you that there is only an adult presence in the playground from 8.40am. Pupils will only be brought into the hall on mornings of heavy rain IF a member of Senior Management is available to supervise. Breakfast Club is available from 8.00am at a cost of £1.00 per day. Pupils who qualify for free meals do not need to pay. (This does not include the government sponsored P1 – P3 free meals)
Healthy Eating
As a health promoting school we support healthy eating in school. Fruit, veg, crisps, diluting juice or milk are recommended. No fizzy juice or energy drinks will be allowed. Sweets should be a special treat. As many children have allergies, birthday cakes should not be sent in to share in class. Please note that nuts are not allowed in school at any time.
