PACKED LUNCH BOXES
Please make sure that you take you child’s packed lunch box and water bottle home every night to wash. Dirty, sticky packed lunch boxes attract ants. Every other Friday the lunch trolleys will be emptied and anything left in them will be thrown away to avoid problems with pests.
Please make sure that all your child’s uniform, PE kit, glasses and anything else that they bring to school has their name on it. Then we can help to get it back to them if they lose it.
