Please be reminded that children must be in school at 8.40am.  Children arriving late will miss vital learning in the classroom.  Please ensure that children arrive on time.

Dear Parents and Carers, as you know a general election has been called for 12th December 2019.

Our building is a designated polling station.  A decision has been taken that the school will be closed to children on this day.  This decision has been taken for reasons of safeguarding.

The Key Stage 1 Nativity will now take place on Friday 13th December at the same time.

The school calendar has been updated to reflect this.

Important information required:

It is essential that we have valid contact details for your child.  We are now required to keep 3 contact records on our system.  In case of emergency we must have up to date details for you or another contact.  Please provide contact details to the school office.
