Medication in School

We wanted to take this opportunity to remind you about our expectations around medications in school.

Students should NOT be carrying over the counter medication around the school building and must never share their medication with another student.  This is for the health and safety of all our students.

If your child needs to bring medication into school you need to collect a form from reception at school (this is part of our safeguarding protocol).  The form can be completed and handed over during your visit.

Rounders Club

If you’re enjoying rounders in your lessons don’t forget Rounders Club every Thursday after School.  In addition there will be a Year 7/8 girls cricket tournament in July that I would like to take a team to. Please come along to rounders club to practice your fielding skills! No experience required!  Mrs Williams
