Welcome back to the new school year
Welcome back to the new school year

All the information you need for a confident start on Monday 5th September

We hope you have had a lovely break over the summer.

There is a lot to look forward to in the forthcoming year, and we especially welcome all our new starters in EYFS Butterfly and Bumblebee classes. 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. 

Drop-off and pick-up routines

You can familiarise yourself with the plan of the school here showing the class layout for 2022 - 2023.

Our guide to dropping off and picking up your child/ren contains the detail about daily routines and routes to and from school. It will be published here soon. 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 8.45am. The gates will close and registers will be taken at 8.50am. Anyone arriving between 8.50am and 9.00am will be marked as late; arrivals after 9.00am will be classed as unauthorised absences. School ends at 3.15pm for Years 1 – 6 and for Reception classes. Anyone arriving after 9 will be marked as an unauthorised absence for the morning.

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 class-related information you need from September. This includes information on the term's topics, homework and PE arrangements, plus the agreed entrance and exit routes for each classroom. Classes are now known by their tree names. 

School lunches

The menu for the autumn term is already available here. Please see our Office section for 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. All children are, of course, expected to wear full school uniform and to have a change of footwear available at school (such as trainers or wellies) so that they can access all areas of the school grounds throughout the year.
