Health & Safety

Please can you ensure on Match Days and all other days that parents and pupils do not enter by foot by the road. There is also a pedestrian entrance to the fields and this is much safer to use.


We hope your children have a wonderful year of sport; with such a wide range of activities we hope that all pupils get involved in at least one activity per week.


Kind regards, Boys PE
