A reminder that, as of Monday 21st, drop-off and pick-up times are changing for some children. Full details are in the letter we sent last week. Please try and arrive at school as close to the necessary time as you can. Remember to wear a mask and socially distance as best you can. We would also respectfully ask you not to bring dogs onto any part of the school site, including the pathway leading from the back entrance.


If you joined us for our Nursery Parents’ Evening today, you can find the presentation below. If you could not make it, the notes might be useful. Please feel welcome to get in touch if you have any questions.


Please find our recent Reception Parents’ Evening presentation below.


Back in May 2021, we held a Relationships & Sex Education (RSE) information evening for parents. If you did not manage to make it or would like to refer back, please find the presentation here.


We wrote to you before half-term regarding transition work and some changes to classes, namely to this year’s Year Two and Year Four.

Please note, children will be told about the planned changes to these year groups on Friday 18th June. As part of the work around reconfiguring the classes, children will have the opportunity to name a small group of children who they would like to be with next year. They will have the weekend to think about this and then state their preferences on Monday 21st June.

On Friday 25th June, children will find out who they will be with next year. We will also send out information to parents, on which teachers and other adult support will be in which classes for next year.


Our new Deputy Head, Sam Carter will be visiting the school tomorrow. Mr Carter will be at the front gate tomorrow morning to help greet the children, if parents would like to put a name to a face!


We will begin to start using the back gate as an entrance to school from Monday 07th June. You can access this via the pathway which runs alongside the village hall. For the moment, the gate will be supervised from 09:00 – 09:15 and is only for families of children in Year Two – Year Four.

Please note, as per our risk management measures, parents will still not be able to come onto the school site and collection will remain the same for all at the front entrances.


We are currently advertising for a Learning Support Assistant. Further details on how to apply can be found here.
