We look forward to welcoming all parents/carers to school who can join us to support and cheer on the children participating in Potted Sports (AM) and their Competitive Races (PM).

There will be extra tuck shop and drinks to purchase throughout the whole day so please bring money for your child/children and yourselves if you wish to do so. During the two water/rest stops during Potted Sports is when your child/children and yourselves can visit the tuck shop and the tuck shop will be open all afternoon on the top pitch during the Competitive Races.
