Christmas Panto trip is on Thursday 12th December. Please ensure permission and payment is made online. Thank you.



There has been an increase in the number of children, including Nursery children, arriving late into school. This causes disruption to learning, and upset to younger children, who are having to walk through school. We will be conducting random “Late Gate’s” over the next few weeks to hopefully reduce the number of late arrivals.

If you are signing your child in late,

please ensure you type a reason for the lateness.

Thank you.


Car Park

Please can we remind parents that the school car park is for staff and deliveries only. Parents are not permitted to walk through the car park with children to gain access to school as this is a health and safety risk, particularly with the current building work. Please use the paths at both entrances to school.

Please send any tokens into school with your child, to hand in to their class teacher.

Many thanks in advance.
