We are continuing to improve our provision for e-safety.  We have created an E-Safety group made up of children across the school.  They meet every Friday and aim to send out a newsletter every month.  The first newsletter is attached.


An “Attendance” letter along with supporting information from the Education Welfare Service will be sent home this week.  Please read the information carefully.  It highlights why attendance at school is important.  The letter contains information about the rewards on offer for both pupils and parents!


Please help us to continue to improve our school by completing the online Parent Survey. Please go to Please complete the survey by Tuesday 1st November 2016.  If you would like to complete the survey whilst waiting at Parent Evenings, please see Mr. Greenslade- We have plenty of Ipads ready!


We have had a number of cases recently where pupils have come into school and told their teacher that they were sick in the night.  PLEASE NOTE to stop the risk of other pupils and teachers being unwell Health Guidelines state that children should not return to school until 48 hours has passed since their last bout of sickness or diarrhoea.  Help us stop the spread of infection keep them home for 48 hours.  We will be contacting parents to collect their child if we believe they have had recent sickness
