Welcome! Welcome back to all those Hornbeam parents from last year and welcome to the new parents, the children have come back excited and with an excellent attitude and they all seem to have had an excellent summer.


Please remember that my door is always open, if you have any question - big or small - please don't hesitate to come and ask me in the morning or after school.


Meet the teacher sessions are running next Thursday (14th) during the afternoon and after school so please come in to find out about me and the year ahead and to ask any questions you might have.


I look forward to seeing you around school,

Alex Walker
