Uniform

Dear Parents/Carers,

The students and staff have welcomed the adjustments we have made to uniform this week when the weather was exceptionally hot.
Next week the weather forecast is for average June temperatures and FULL school uniform can resume from Monday 26th June onwards.
If the weather changes again and becomes very hot we will let you know of any modifications to the uniform.

Yours faithfully

Mrs Sue Collings
