Not only do we have an excellent track record when it comes to academic progress, we have also gained an enviable reputation when it comes to sporting achievement.

    Message for year 6 parents Year 6 pupils who are joining us for the last week need to arrive at 8.50am please. Their day will finish at 2.50pm. This is to avoid them arriving and leaving at the same time as the Key Worker and Vulnerable children.

    Monday morning we will be encouraging parents not to stop when dropping off their child to avoid groups gathering on the playground. There will be lots of staff on duty to help guide you. Unfortunately we will not be able to accommodate extra children if they are not on our list.
