Thank you!

Thank you to the Year 6 parents for coming to the SATS meeting yesterday and also to the Year 1 parents to the Big Write introduction.  For those that were unable to make the SATS meeting, there will be another one next Wednesday 25th September, 8:55-9:25.  Please click here for the Big Write presentation, here for the parent handout and here for the SATS presentation.  Both presentations are also on our website.

​Thank you to all those who came to Read with your Child today. We hope you and your child enjoyed the time together sharing a story. 

Today we welcomed the Chair of the Trustees, Mrs Quinton, to Hamsey Green. She was delighted to see the new Reception and Year 1 classrooms and how well the children have settle in being on one site.



Warlingham School have expressed their concerns of parents walking through the grounds after dropping pupils off at Hamsey Green.  Please note that as of the end of next week, the gates between the schools will shut at 8:30am and parents will need to walk via the rear gate if they wish to exit this way.  Please can we also remind you that parking is not permitted for parents on the Warlingham site.

Please can we remind parents of all children, that for safety reasons, pupils should not be allowed to play on the trim trail before and after school.

The vehicle gates are to be used for vehicles only.  For your own safety and the safety of the children, please use the pedestrian entrance/gate only.
