The School Day

The school day starts at 08:45. This means children need to be in school BEFORE 08:45 in order to make the most of their learning. If your child walks to school on their own, make sure they leave with plenty of time to get to school; and remind them to hurry!


Cycle Team

We have now received the results of last week’s race and several of our team managed top five places, including Dylan, during his first ever bike race. Well done team!



You will all be aware that we have KEEP CLEAR signs outside school and by the traffic barrier in Queens Drive. Please respect these. They ensure the safety of children crossing the road at these points. The council have also warned us that large fines are issued for parking on them.
