Please park considerately and safely specifically outside the school gates and in the car park outside. Please do not park or leave cars blocking access for local residents and please do not park past the bollards / in front of the school gates. A very small minority of parents continue to park outside the school gates – please refrain from doing so for the safety of both pupils and parents!
Local enforcement officers will be patrolling and issuing fines if cars are found using these areas.

Termly overviews should be sent home by the end of this week. They will detail what your child will be learning this term in school. You can use these to support your child learning at home! If you have not received a copy by Friday – please contact your child’s class teacher!
National Tests have now been completed for this year! Well done to all pupils! If your child was absent last week we will complete the tests before the test window closes tomorrow!
TEACHERS 2 PARENTS APP
Several parents have contacted us regarding not receiving text messages. Check you have not got the teachers2parents app on your device. If you have the app please delete it from your phone as if you have the app, messages go to the app rather than text message.
Please make sure that you get your holiday forms into the office as soon as possible. Ideally we would like them at least a fortnight in advance. If you put them in last minute then you can expect for them not to have been authorised in time for your holiday.
TEXT RECEIPTS FOR TRIP MONIES
Now that we no longer take cash for school meals, we have decided to introduce a text receipt system for any trip monies sent into school. This will give you peace of mind that your money has been received and processed by the office. Please don’t always expect to have a receipt on the same day that you send it in, as depending on workload your payment might be waiting in the safe for processing. Please keep these electronic receipts as should you need to query payment at a later point then you will need to provide proof of payment. This system will help to safeguard you and us.
This week is Menu 1
