As Salaam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahu Wa Barakatuhu Dear Parents and Students,
A very warm welcome to your new school. Alhumdulliah we will begin tomorrow 27th January 2019 and we as staff are looking forward to welcoming all.
Tomorrow will be a little unusual as it will be a day to do some team building and also to introduce the children to the way we would like them to work. Please help us by bringing in an old newspaper – there will be somewhere to put this in the hall tomorrow.
The timetable will be different tomorrow as compared to the 7 weeks to follow as we need to do baseline assessments in all three subjects so we can place them in the right classes.
Below is guidance to help the afternoon run smoothly
Both the small and larger carparks will be open for parents to use. If parking on the roads around the school, please be mindful of parking appropriately and with due care for the residents around the school
Which Entrance to use
Please bring Children in through the front entrance doors of the school and then down to the hall- there will be people around to direct you tomorrow.
