Just a wee reminder that your child's report will be posted out to you today and with it there will be a slip informing you of your child's new class teacher. On Friday you should receive an invite via your child's Glow email inviting you to a new Microsoft Team with the new class teacher. This will allow your child to participate in activities next week with their new teacher. If your child is having a teacher new to the school you may receive an invite in the name of a current member of staff, this is simply for admin purposes.

As part of our Transition Programme we were hoping to post a video for our usual Induction Evening this week.

We hope to be able to have this ready next week and will share this with you as soon as possible.
