It’s good to be back…

The start back to school has been a good one. Thank you for the many positive comments and messages of support we have received. It is wonderful to have the children back at school!

Look out for our brand new website coming soon.

Reminder: School closes at 12.20pm every Friday this term (12.10pm for Early Years).

Parents/ Carers;
Hopefully our “Back to School Guidance” Booklet provides the information you need. However, please do not hesitate to make contact if you would like to know more.

If we all work together we should be able to keep everyone well.

From Ms Lynch and the Staff.


New Resources

To minimise the sharing of resources, at the start of term each pupil will be issued with a brand new:

  • Individual named water bottle.
  • Toolkit – stocked with essentials including a pencil, fine liner and coloured pencils plus other classroom essentials.
  • NEW for September -we will be issuing each child with a PE bag for their kit. Clean PE kits should be brought to school on a Monday and will be sent home on a Friday to be washed ready for the next week.

Changes to the school day

PLEASE NOTE – from September, the timings of the school day will be changing to the following:

8.50 to 3.10 pm Monday to Thursday

8.50 to 12.10 noon on Friday

YEARS 1 – 6
8.45 to 3.20 pm Monday to Thursday

8.45 to 12.20 pm on Friday


Could we ask that children do not bring rucksacks or bags into school. No equipment is needed and children should only bring their PE kits and packed lunch boxes.
