Welcome to the Acorn 1 page!
We are so happy to welcome you all back to school and we hope that you had a fantastic Summer break. We have an exciting half term planned and are looking forward to settling into our new classrooms. We would like to invite you to a drop in morning on Wednesday 13th September at 9am-9.30am so you can see our new classrooms in action, spend some time playing with your child and get to know the staff. We will be able to answer any questions you have too, but remember we are always available at the beginning and the end of the day if you have any concerns or need to speak to Mrs Harrison or another member of the team. For our children who join us in the afternoons, we will arrange a convenient time for you to come and visit us one afternoon before you collect your child.
