Q8 - If my child wants to give a present to their class teacher can we still do this?

Q6 - Will my child receive their year group reward certificates / badges?
A Yes, you and your child have all worked incredibly hard over the lockdown. Certificates / badges will be given out during the transition time. If your child is not in they will receive it when they next attend. For KS2 your child will then start the next year with the house points of the badge they get awarded.

A - There is a guide of how to do this on the Reception section of the school website. Click here to access this.
Q4 - My child has been having instrumental lessons at school. Will they continue in September?
A - We are hoping to restart instrumental lessons as soon as possible in the next academic year. Many children have continued with Individual lessons online this term which were offered to all groups except Y4 brass. You can still set up these through Southampton Music Hub by sending an e-mail to Graham.Hesp@southampton.gov.uk

Q1 - My child's medication is at school. How can I get this back?
