Dear Parents,

Just a quick note to let you know that, on the last day of term, the whole school will gather on the playground at 3pm to sing some Christmas songs.

As the PTFA will also be selling hot chocolate, donuts and cookies, I hope that you will be able to join us.


Kind regards

Mrs Sandra Dorrington

Children in Need Day - Friday 17th November 2023


Non uniform  - children are invited to wear spots to school and make a donation to help us to raise lots of money for needy children across the country. We will be attempting Joe Wicks' challenge for each class to complete 1000 Bearpees across the day. We are hoping to exceed last year's donations of £240, and look forward to seeing lots of spots in school on Friday.

Nut Allergies

As we have several pupils in our school who are allergic to nuts, we need to request that you do not give your child any nut-based food for their lunches. This includes peanut butter, chocolate spread and nutella, as this could result in a serious reaction for these pupils. There are occasions when the children have to go into different classes to eat their lunch, and therefore this has to be a whole school issue.

Thank you for supporting the welfare of all our children.

We would like to remind you that it is your responsibility to order your child's school dinner from the Schoolgrid system.

You can order dinners for several weeks in advance, but should you change your mind and provide your child with a packed lunch, you must cancel the dinner from the Schoolgrid system.


Should you experience any problems, you can phone the support line at Schoolgrid on 01506 300310.
