Extra Information/ polite reminders

In the morning, P2 doors open at 08.50 and will close at 08.55. If the doors are closed when you arrive, please go with your child to the office door (please don’t knock on the classroom door to be let in). We ask you do this, so your child is registered properly, in case of any emergencies. Thank you for your support and understanding.

We kindly ask children to keep ‘show and tell’ items at home. We hope you appreciate this can very quickly get out of control. It is not always possible to share any on a given day or get through the volume that is coming in (and sadly some children end up disappointed). There will be planned for opportunities to share learning and achievements.

We are here to help and support you, please feel free to send in any questions or concerns via office admin or if you are happy to, catch us at the door at the beginning/end of the day.

Thanks for your continued help and support. Have a lovely weekend, see you all on Monday!

The P2 Team 😊
