Dear Parents and Carers,
It’s a new school year and it was lovely to see the children arriving so smartly – we have enjoyed welcoming them back. We hope you have all had a lovely summer. The children of St. Gabriel’s have settled well into their new classes and we welcome our new starters both in our Reception class and also those that have joined in other year groups. We are excited to have you and your families join St. Gabriel’s school community.
Below is a list of the dates already set for the Autumn term. Keep an eye on updates to this list in future newsletters as we are in the process of confirming dates for Christmas Concerts and events led by our dedicated ‘Friends of St. Gabriel’s.’
Look out for when your child’s class ‘Meet and Greet’ session with their new teacher is. This is an opportunity for you to see your child’s classroom and hear about the plans, curriculum, routines and expectations directly from their teacher(s). It’s a great chance to raise any queries you may have, though of course if there is anything you would like to discuss before, please speak to your child’s teacher upon pick up at the end of the school day. They will be happy to help.
