Water Bottles Required
As a precautionary measure we have turned off the water supply to our drinking fountains.
We would like every child from Monday 16th March to bring a water bottle to the Academy, clearly labelled with the child’s name and class. Fruit juices / squash should not be in bottles to prevent any issues relating to tooth decay. Jugs of water will also be available in classrooms.
Thank you for your support.

You can check your child’s progress in reading at any time by logging on to Accelerated Reader; each child has a unique log on. Further details can be found on our Accelerated Reader page.
