As the weather improves, please provide your child with a named sun hat, staff cannot apply suntan cream, so it is best to apply before school and show your child how to apply it themselves. It is also important to provide your child with water.

Now is a good time to check the names in clothes, hand written names tend to wash out over time and some sticky labels become not so sticky! _
