My apologies for the delayed start to term, but there was no way that we could have welcomed children back to school yesterday! Thank you to ALL the staff and volunteers who came along to sweep, clean, mop, polish and vacuum; school looks amazing today.
The contractors will remain on site for the next month or so, working on phase 2 of the build project, so thank you for your co-operation with restricted access to school. 
It was so lovely to welcome everyone in to our new extended hall this morning, the children's faces were amazing. We have all promised to work very hard at keeping our classrooms and school spaces clean and tidy! All the children seem very happy to be back, catching up with their friends and making some new ones.
I'm sure this is going to be another exciting and fun filled year. 
Here are a few before and after photos of the build project.
