Safeguarding - Pupils Arriving At School And Collection

Please ensure that you wait with your child(ren) at drop off until the school's opening at 8.15am.  It is only at this time that school becomes responsible for all children's safe care. Before this time it is a parental duty.

Please note, however, that all children can be brought to the front door at any time from 7.45am - 8.15am where they will be welcomed and looked after by our Early Bird staff as appropriate for their age. This does not need to be booked in advance.

Also please let the school office and/or your child's form teacher know if someone else will be collecting your child at the end of the day. We cannot release pupils without this information.

Many thanks

Pokemon Cards - Reminder

Dear Parents

Over recent days we've experienced some distress in the children over Pokemon cards. This subsequently impacts too upon classroom learning time. As such, please could we request that these cards are left at home and do not come into school again.  

With many thanks for your understanding.

Pastoral Head

World Book Day Vouchers

A big thank you goes out to them, please do support them by visiting and spending your vouchers there.

I do hope you all managed to celebrate World Book Day by enjoying a book together.

Reading Books Wanted

Dear Parents

We know that many of you read widely with your children at home alongside the regular and significant investments we make into our reading resources in school. 

We are always looking to add depth and variety to this so if any of you have books at home which your children have outgrown and would support our school reading schemes, we're always very grateful to accept donations.  

Many thanks
