It is open to people to come and go and the café area is not a secure area to leave belongings. Please ensure your child always keeps their belongings with them and takes responsibility for their own stuff. If you have lost an item, please ask to be directed to the lost property bin.
We have a website, that holds a lot of valuable information, so please utilise that. If you have any suggestions for things that would be useful to have on the website, please let us know. If you are unable to find answers to your questions, please email us.
