All children will return to school on Monday 6th September. We look forward to welcoming everyone back!

However, holidays can bring with them their own challenges for children – from fears that they’re missing out on fun with their friends, to worries about starting a new school in September.
Ollee, a virtual friend developed by Parent Zone and funded by BBC Children in Need’s A Million & Me, is designed to help parents and children talk about difficult topics, and empower parents to give their children the support they need.
