Hi Everyone,
I hope that you are all well - just a couple of things to share with you.

Due to the limitations of our budget we are mixing our Y3 and Y4 children next year.
They will be in classes 7, 8 & 9. It is possible that your child may be in the same or lower numbered class than last year - this does not mean that they have been kept back or that they aren’t doing well; all 3 classes are similar in make up and none is higher than the other.

On another note, please do ring the office if you wish to pick your child up earlier than the pick up time for their class - as we have all staff in bubbles it can cause difficulties if you turn up without prior warning. Thanks for your help with this.

I remain extremely pleased with how children have been in school, the work of staff in and out of school and the fabulous support of parents - it really helps us out in these strange and difficult times.

Take care
Stay safe
Dave Hill πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸŒˆ

Reception 2020 Information

Thank you for your support during these uncertain times.  We wanted to write to you with some guidance on how the induction into school will work.

However, we want to reassure you that settling your child into school is really important to us, so we have come up with some steps for how this will work.

Please see document above.

Thank You

Reopening Information

Please find above letters to parents about the potential reopening of schools on 1st June.

There are two separate documents above:

one for parents of Reception, Year 1 & Year 6 children


one for Key Worker & Vulnerable children.

If your child is in any of the above groups and will be returning to school on Monday 1st June please let the school know as soon as possible or by Tuesday 26th May at the latest.

You can confirm your place by sending a message to class dojo admin or by emailing or calling the school office.

If we do not hear from you by midday on Tuesday 26th May we will presume that your child is not attending and there will not be any provision for them in school during the first week.

Even if you have already spoken to a member of staff regarding this you will still need to contact the school to confirm your child’s place.
