Mobile Phones at School

Just a reminder that if you need your child to bring their mobile phone to school it must be handed in to their teacher or school office for safe keeping during school time. We are unable to monitor online activity with devices not signed in to our network and the school is not responsible for any damaged or missing devices.

Thank you for your cooperation with this.

Prizegiving over the last three weeks.

Some awesome results, well done!
