Key Information

Communicating with your child's class teacher: 

Our direct year group email is year6@st-matthews.leeds.sch.uk. As both classes use this email, please make it clear in the subject line who the email is for (FAO Mr Davies, Mrs Fishwick or Mrs Challinor). 

 

Names in clothing:

Please ensure that your child's clothing is clearly labelled with their name so their clothing can be rightfully returned (should it be taken off).
