Year 5


 YEAR 5!

Welcome back everyone! 


In Year 5, our day will begin at 8:45am and end at 3:05pm.


Please don't arrive early and try to leave the school grounds as quickly as you can at the end of the day to prevent you coming into contact with too many children and families from other year groups.
