We will use this news item to update you of any 'reminders' in school as a list, rather than lots of seperate tabs for you to open.  Please take a minute to scroll down and skim read to keep informed.

Instrumental lessons

A reminder that should your child wish to cease their instrumental lessons in school, one term's notice is required in writing please.


Please can we remind all parents that children need a named coat in school at all times as the weather is starting to get colder and wetter!!

Health and Hygiene

It is that time of year again when bugs are about! Can we ask that you encourage your children to wash their hands in school to help stop the spread of germs.

Cool Milk Scheme

Our school provides a milk scheme that is available to all of our pupils. Once your child reaches the age of 5 milk is no longer free but is available at a subsidised price. Please log on to to order and pay for your child’s milk.

In the mornings...

Children should not be left in the school playground prior to 8.30am without adult supervision. The school will have a member of staff on duty daily from 8.30am

After School...

Can we also remind parents who use After School Club that pick up is 5.30pm at the latest. Any parents who pick up after this time will be charged a fee of £5.00 per child per 15-minute slot.

For health and safety reasons we would appreciate if you would not let your children play down the side of the school (by the boat/greenhouse) outside of school hours. Similarly, if after school club are using the playground/wooden equipment, these areas will be out of bounds.

Contact details

Please can parents/carers remember to update the school with change of address and contact details so we have the correct information in case of an emergency.


Please remember to inform a member of staff if you have arranged for somebody else to collect your child/children from school or afterschool club. Adults who are new to school will be given a passcode.

Governing Body Minutes

Minutes for Governing Body meetings can be requested from the clerk.
