What says..

The playground is full of timber play equipment, puzzles and trails painted on walls and tarmac, a lovely Wendy house for tinies, and even the fence posts are shaped like coloured pencils.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.
