End of Term

It is the end of a long term but thankfully the weather, although very wet, has not given us snow to interrupt lessons.

We are aware that pupils and staff alike are ready for a rest so we wish everyone a very happy and enjoyable holiday and look forward to seeing you in the New Year.

Please be reminded that school closes at 12.00pm on Friday 18th December and re-opens at 8.40am on Tuesday 5th January 2016.


Happy New Year to all!

Free Fruit from January 2016

Dear Parent/Carer

The school recognises what a difference a healthy snack can make to a child’s level of concentration, especially those who have not had breakfast. Therefore, the school is now in a position to provide fruit each day, free of charge from January 2016. No more snack payments need to be made. This will be taken from our Pupil Premium Budget.

Can I also remind parents/carers that children, who are in receipt of Free School Meals, are also entitled to Free Milk. This does not apply to children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 on Universal Free School Meals, just the children who receive FREE SCHOOL MEALS due to parents claiming benefits.

However, we would still like to encourage all parents to complete the Free School Meals form if you haven’t already done so, as this brings extra funding into school.

Many thanks for your support.
