It is important that at least one parent from each family attends.


Parent/Teacher Meeting P1-P7 – Parent/Teacher meetings will take place from Monday 25th-Wednesday 27th October.  This year the meeting will take place by phone- Phone numbers will be withheld.  A face to face meeting will only be available to parents that are required to sign educational documents.  The slots for booking appointments have now closed, times will be sent out tomorrow.

Google Classroom – We are aware of the difficulties that parents are having whilst accessing Google Classroom.  Unfortunately, the only way that it can be resolved is by logging in as the child, you cannot access all the features using your own email account.  It must be a recognised C2k account.  Letters have been issued with all details required for logging in, if you would like the letter re-issued please email or contact the school office.  There are some classes that will be setting a monthly homework on Google Classroom, therefore it is important that you enrol.
