Headteacher’s Comments

Well done to the Year 3 children who performed a wonderful assembly in celebration of Harvest.  Thank you to everyone who provided food.  These will be donated to the Salvation Army.  Mrs Miller and the kitchen staff once again baked a Harvest Loaf which was shared amongst all the children in the school.  Thank you.

PTA Meeting

Theatre Trip – The Lion King

Please note that children must be accompanied by an adult on this trip. 

Parental Responsibility Policy

As a number of our children are from homes where parents are separated, the Governing Body has recently updated the school’s Parent Responsibility Policy.  This sets out what information each parent will receive from the school.  To view the policy please log on to our school’s website and click on ‘Key Information’ tab, followed by ‘School Policies’.

Polite Reminder

This is a reminder that if you want to meet with a teacher to discuss a concern you should make an appointment with the school office.
