The School Day

Lots of families have been turning up after 8:45 recently. This disrupts the start of your child’s day and makes it harder for them to settle in. Please remember that the school gate is open from 08:30. You can bring children in from 08:30 which gives you a better chance of being on time for school. Please try, it helps your child, the teacher and the other children.


Y1 Phonics Test

Thank you to all of our Y1 children who took the phonics test over the past two weeks. It looks like we have equalled our best ever pass rate of 97%!!
