Foundation children’s visits week beginning 7th September


Hello Foundation Children,

We are really looking forward to seeing you next week for your visit. Take a look at the photos attached. You will need to go along the little road that runs through our school, take care as sometimes we have delivery lorries or refuse collectors that need to use this road. The road is marked with a yellow arrow on the photo. There will be a trail for you to follow with some information boards that you can read together to tell you more about our school. Follow the balloons! (see the other photo attached). As we are keeping visitors on site to a minimum please can you bring no more than two adults from your household and socially distance from anyone that you may meet on your visit. We will make sure that seats and tables used during our chat will be disinfected in between visitors and rooms will be well ventilated. We will show you the Foundation outdoor areas, classroom spaces, your tray and coat peg and even the toilets so that you will know where to find everything! If you are not sure of your meeting day or time please phone the school office. We are really looking forward to meeting you all, not long now. See you all soon.
