We are beginning to recieve some money through this so thank you to those parents who have signed up already. 


Reminder!! Our gates open at 8.35am, the doors open at 8.40am. The gates close at 8.45am sharp. The children are being registered at 8.45am and then start their learning straight away. Please ensure your children are in school by this time and are in their first lesson. 


Please listen to your children reading daily. Teachers have noticed a deterioration in the number of times children are reading during a week. This will affect your children’s confidence and reading fluency. When you are reading with your child, please ask questions about what they have read to check their understanding and ensure they know the meanings of some of the trickier words in the text. The importance of reading for children cannot be underestimated. Reading for pleasure can benefit a child’s education, social and cognitive development, their wellbeing, and their mental health. 

Parents speaking to teachers

 Communication is really important to us. If you would like to speak to a class teacher about any issues concerning your child, please make an appointment to see the class teacher. Please do not try to discuss issues when you are dropping your child off or picking your child up. The teacher needs to ensure the class's safety and they cannot do this if they are having conversations while meeting and greeting children or making sure they are going home with the right adults. Thank you for your support with this. 


Attendance- If your child is poorly please call or email the office before 8.45am to let us know. Please provide appointment letters if you are taking your child out of school for medical appointments.   


School Milk– If you wish your child to have school milk, please register at 


Payments to school– Please can parents make sure they are up to date with their payments to school for dinner money, breakfast club and afterschool club. 

Thank you for our continued support of your children and our lovely school. 


With love and prayers, 

Mrs Pearson
