Welcome to our school website


Pupils who attend school regularly have been shown to achieve at a higher level than students who do not have regular attendance.

Pupils who attend school everyday also form better relationships with their peers and staff.

Please ensure that your child arrives to school on time each day. The school day starts at 8.45am.

Poor punctuality has a detrimental effect on a child’s learning. If a child is coming in to school late every day, they are missing the important start of a lesson and causing disruption to the class.
