Hi everyone,
Hope you are all well and looking forward to coming back to school. We are extremely looking forward to seeing you all again and to ensure you all settle in well. There will be many worries and fears that some of you may have about coming back to school and that is absolutely normal for you to feel this. We hope that these videos will help to put a smile on your face and help ease some of the worries you may have by becoming a little more familiar with what school looks like before you arrive. Enjoy (it's not everyday you get to see your teachers dancing)!!

Message from the Director Of Public Health

Headteacher Update 11/05/2020


Dear parents and carers. 

I am aware that many of you will be aware of the announcement in the government briefing on Sunday 10th March that schools may start reopening to children in F2 (Reception), Year 1 and Year 6 from June 1st. There is still a lot of uncertainty about exactly what the government is expecting from schools in terms of reopening, so try not to worry too much at the moment about what is going to happen.   I can assure you that we will do whatever we can to keep our children, families and staff safe and will keep you well informed once plans for reopening are clearer, so that you can ask questions and raise any issues. In the meantime, take care and stay safe. 

Mrs Cath Whittingham

Headteacher Update - Support with Routines 


Dear parents/carers,

School staff have really enjoyed speaking to you and your children during phone calls over the last few days. It is clear that you are really wanting to support your children with their home learning - even though this is a challenge for all sorts of reasons, including the fact that the children are not always willing to have a go at the activities provided for them. Please use the link below to watch a video from the Education Endowment Foundation which gives some really helpful ideas about how to put routines in place to help you and your child structure each day. Let us know how you get on by sending a message on Class Dojo and/or when you next talk to a member of school staff on the phone. Thank you for all your support.
