Forgotten items There has been an increased amount of forgotten items being brought into school during the school day. Items such as PE Kits, mobile phones, homework, and water bottles are just some of the items which reception are being asked to deliver to students. Whilst every effort is made to ensure forgotten items are delivered to students on time, the school cannot guarantee this. Please remind your child to come to school fully equiped for the day to avoid disappointment.
