Payments – After School Clubs and Music Lessons

The deadline for payment for continuing access to music lessons and clubs for this term was Friday 24th January. If payment has not been received we will assume that you no longer wish your child to access these groups and the places will be offered to pupils on any waiting lists; if this is not the case please contact the school office as soon as possible.
