Dear Parent / Carer,


Some of you have expressed worries about your own children after the incident in Manchester on Monday this week. We would like to reassure you that we will continue to safeguard all the children in school as we always do. We are trying to keep school as normal as possible so that the children do not become upset or distressed. If you need some advice to help you to alleviate your concerns / worries a useful website to look at is accessed through the link below.


The best thing for the children is to carry out their normal day to day lives which means coming into school, being with their friends and involving themselves in their learning.



Mrs. Starkey

(Head teacher)
