Thank you!

Thank you all for your patience and understanding on Monday when we had to close the school. We look for every possible solution before making a decision to send children home as we know it can cause real inconvenience for families. We really appreciate your support at these times- thankyou! ****Just as a reminder, we will always use Sch.Life messages to notify parents of a school closure.***

Poppy Appeal - funds raised...

We are delighted to announce that we raised a staggering £300.00 following the sale of poppies and various merchandise items; the Poppy Appeal have sent a lovely thank-you card and are sincerely grateful for the funds raised as without your help, they would not be able to continue their vital welfare and benevolent work. Thank-you.

Nasal Flu Vaccinations - Catch-up Clinic

For any children that missed the Nasal Flu Vaccination clinic on 13th November, the catch-up clinic will be held on Thursday 9th January 2020. A letter will be sent out via the children with the relevant consent forms which will need to be completed accordingly; not returning a consent form is not a clear indication as to whether you want your child/children to have the vaccine, thank-you.

We work to ensure our children our safe and cared for and by doing this we are protecting their health and development and preventing them from harm.  If we are worried, we will raise concerns, share information and take prompt action with the aim of ensuring families receive the right help at the right time.
