For Your Information
Communication via Class Dojo
Please ensure if your child is a member of Year 2 you have joined us on Class Dojo where we will keep you up to date with our latest adventures, send reminders and share key information throughout the year. If you need to contact us for anything which is important, please contact the school office as Dojo is not always monitored throughout the day.
