Please feel welcome to make an appointment to discuss any questions you may have regarding homework. Thank you for your continued support.
PE LESSONS- THURSDAY AND FRIDAY

Most of the children look extremely smart in their Lionel school uniform. Please ensure your child is always wearing the correct uniform. The School Uniform policy is available on the school website.
