Census Day 20th January

Please support the school on National Census Day

Thursday 20th January 2022 is national census day.  Please support the school by encouraging your child to have a school dinner on this day. Our funding is helped by the number of Foundation Stage/KS1 children who take a dinner on this day.

Zest Catering has prepared a special fun menu for this special day. All special diets will be catered for.

Butcher's pork sausage or vegetable sausage (Ve)
Served with fries and sauces
Fried onions optional.

Hand decorated cupcake.

For KS2 children who do not normally have a school dinner, there is an option on the School Gateway to make a one-off payment for this dinner.

Happy New Year
Happy New Year

Welcome back to school on Tuesday 4th January

We hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year break. Thank you for your support for the measures that helped to keep our children and families safe last term.  We advise that all children take a lateral flow test on Monday 3rd January, prior to returning to school on Tuesday 4th January 2022 to give us the best possible start to term 3.

As always, there is a lot to look forward to in the spring term. We will be sending out regular news in our weekly newsletters and we encourage parents to follow us on Twitter for quick updates, pictures and videos of the many exciting activities that are happening regularly around school.

Please see below a few reminders of the practicalities of coming in to school well prepared to make the most of the learning day. 

Operational plan

Please read the current operational plan which includes details about daily routines for playtimes, lunchtimes, equipment use and communication with school. 

If we are required by the government to change any aspects of this plan, parents will be contacted directly by the school, either by text or email. You may wish to read this summary of our contingency plans which shows where a reintroduction of further safety procedures might be required in the event of escalating cases of Covid.

Drop-off and pick-up routines

This guide to dropping off and picking up your child/ren contains lots of detail about daily routines and routes to and from school. We are aiming to minimise congestion around the school site as we head into the autumn/winter months so please do check the relevant page for your child's class.

Please note: children must be in their classrooms by 8.50am. School ends at 3.15pm for Years 1 – 6 and 3.10pm for Reception classes.

Reception families have been contacted individually with starting and ending times for their introductory transition sessions.

Class information

The classes page of the website contains all the specific information you need for this term. Class pages give information about the term's topics, homework, swimming and PE arrangements. Classes are known by their tree names. 

School lunches

The menu for January and February is already available here. You can always find a link to the current menu in our Office section, along with information on costs, how to pay and how to order your child's lunches.


Please check all uniform requirements here, including how to purchase uniform and PE wear bearing the school logo.

Covid guidance for parents
