Birth Certificate/Parental Responsibility Check - We will be asking you in September to bring in your child's full birth certificate so that we can fulfil our admissions requirements by checking the name, date of birth and who has parental responsibility for your child. Please note we do not make copies of your certificate or need to keep it for any reason.

Photo Permissions - Again, in line with data protection laws, we need your permission in order to use your child's image.

Snack time - letter offering the option of Orange juice or milk (or both!) at snack time.

Food tasting - Throughout the year, your child will have the opportunity to taste a variety of foods, therefore we ask you to let us know about any allergies
