The school target for next week is;

remember to be the best you can be.

Staffing for September.

We are currently interviewing for new teachers for September and hope to complete this process next week so that we can communicate the staff structure to you after half term.

Sports Day 7th June.

Don’t forget that Sports Day is the first Wednesday after half term (7th June). We will aim to open the gates around 1.30pm to allow time to set up the races after lunch. Everyone is welcome.

Swiss Trainee Teacher

We are looking forward to welcome a Swiss trainee teacher into Year 6 after half term. Miss Schintler will be working with us for 3 weeks.

Updated Policies

Please note that governors have recently updated our uniform and attendance policies. These can be found in the policies section of our website.

Recent Pupil Survey

We recently did a survey of our older pupils, and are pleased to find that they feel happy and safe in our school. They have suggested some improvements that we could make to lessons, and we will consider these carefully. A large number also reported that they struggled to get a good night’s sleep, which we know is very important for their health and wellbeing

School Calendar

Don't forget to check the school calendar regularly. We have lots going on and don't want you to miss anything.

Free school meals for all years for pupils whose families receive financial support.

​If you are in receipt of certain benefits, your child could also qualify for free school meals during all school years. To qualify you must be receiving:

  • Universal Credit, provided you have an annual net earned income of no more than £7,400, as assessed by earnings from up to three of your most recent assessment periods (£616.67 per month)

  • Income Support

  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance

  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance

  • Support under part six of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999

  • The guarantee element of Pension Credit

  • Child Tax Credit, provided you are also not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual household gross income that does not exceed £16,190 (as assessed by HMRC)

  • Working Tax Credit run-on, paid for four weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit

Please note that contributions-based benefits, including contribution-related Jobseekers' Allowance do not entitle you to claim free school meals.

Apply for free school meals

You will receive an instant decision on whether your application is successful. If it is, we will fully process the application in 5 working days and notify the school. Once the school has received this your child can begin enjoying free school meals. You should continue to pay until confirmation comes through. Schools may be able to arrange reimbursement of payment made while your entitlement is being confirmed.

Free school meals claims cannot be backdated. They are awarded from the date we receive the application, once eligibility is confirmed. This is because there is a legal requirement for a request to be made, before a free school meal can be provided. If you are not entitled to free school meals, you will be notified in writing.
