Anti-Bullying Week

This week has been Anti-Bullying week, and children have done work in school to help understand what bullying is and how they should deal with it if it happens. Our approach is based on STOP – that bullying is defined as something that happens Several Times On Purpose, and if it happens then children should Start Telling Other People. Please take some time to reinforce this with your child so that if they experience inappropriate behaviours of any sort, they understand how they should deal with it.

Pantomime Visit 8.12.21

As you know, we are planning to visit the pantomime on 8th December. We are mindful that Covid cases are rising and we want to ensure that the visit is a safe as possible before agreeing that it can go ahead. We have received the risk assessment from the theatre who have confirmed that they have additional sanitisation, cleaning and ventilation in place. We also know that our federation takes all the seats in the ground floor stalls area, which means that we will not sit next to or mix with other schools or members of the public. We will keep the visit under close review and make a final decision on it as late as possible.

Achievement & Progress.

Further to the letter sent yesterday, teachers will be sending information about your child’s achievement and progress next week. These may come home on different days for different classes, but all information should have been sent by the end of the week.

Late Arrivals.

We continue to note that some children are arriving late. It is really important for their learning that they have a good start to their day, so please ensure that they arrive punctually.


If you bring a pram to school at the start or end of the day, please be mindful of other families who are navigating the playground. Sometimes, it is difficult for children to get to the school doors because prams are in the way. We know that it is challenging to manage the school site with a young family, but your consideration for others would be greatly appreciated.

Staff car park

POLITE NOTICE: please can we remind everyone that the staff car park is not to be used at drop-of and collection times. Please park safely and responsibly to help us keep everyone (children and adults) safe. Many thanks for your support.
