Bus Users

Please do remember to let your bus mother know if your child will not be on the bus in the afternoon.

As after school activities are starting - please do send me an e-mail if your child has signed up for an activity, noting day and activity - and this will be noted on the weekly register for your child.


[We do not have access to your child's diary - so you do need to tell the PTA in addition to your class teacher].

Please help us to ensure a smooth start to the school year on the buses.
