Next holidays

We break up on Thursday 13th February 2020


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. Please use the paths at both entrances to school.


Unavoidable Closure

If it is felt necessary to close the school due to weather or building problems, this information will be sent out by text as soon as possible. Please ensure we have the correct mobile number. Thank you.


Social Media: Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, etc

In line with other schools, we would like to strongly recommend that children do not have access to social media (even under parent supervision) until they are old enough to have an email account, which we believe is 13.


Magic Breakfast

Please can we remind parents that Magic Breakfast is from 8:30 – 8:40am. Please use the KS1 door, which will be opened at 8:30am. Children cannot be dropped off at the office. Thank you.


Reading Books

Please can we remind parents that if your child’s reading book is lost, there is a £5 lost book fee.



Please can we ask parents to return any letters/reply slips to school with their child, to be handed to their class teacher. Please do not hand them in at the office. Thank you.



Australian Bush Fires

The School Council would like to thank you for all the donations sent in on Friday – we managed to raise £150 for the Australian Bush Fire fund.



The school doors open at 8:50am and are closed at 9am. Children arriving after this time will receive a late mark and will miss essential learning. Please ensure children are in school on time.

If you are 5 minutes late every day that adds up to over 3 days lost each year.  15 minutes late is the same as  being absent for 2 weeks a year.

Persistent late arrival at school may lead to a penalty notice being issued.

Any children arriving to school late, must be brought into school by an adult, and signed in using the electronic system. Children should not be signing themselves in.

School finishes at 3pm – please ensure that children are collected on time.  


Emotional Health and Wellbeing

Our school website has lots of information and support for emotional health and wellbeing. Click on the Safeguarding tab onto the Emotional Health and wellbeing tab for further information.


Head Lice

Please check your child’s hair regularly and in the event you do find head-lice, please treat them immediately to avoid further spread of these determined little creatures.



Code of Conduct for Parents

The school expects parents and carers to:

Always respect the caring ethos of the school.

Always understand that parents and teachers need to work together for the benefit of children.

Always demonstrate in their own behaviour that all members of the school community should be treated with respect and understand that even if there is conflict due to a member of staff’s oversight, parents must remain calm and respectful.

Always approach school staff to help resolve issues.

Always work with the school to build relationships with its staff.

Always know that children cannot be moved on request of the parent.

Always seek to clarify a child’s version of events with the school’s view in order to bring about a peaceful solution to any issue.

Always correct their own child’s behaviour, especially where it could lead to conflict.

Always avoid using staff as threats to admonish children.


We thank parents for observing the Code of Conduct.
