Dear all,



A great big welcome to all our new starters in Nursery, F2 and to our 4 new starters in KS1; welcome back to all our lovely Pinewood children and families. We do hope your child settles well into his/her new class and has a great school year. We are having a bit of a settling in period this week, easing the children into school life. So far so good!
