Latest News & Upcoming Events

Dear Parent / Carer

From Monday 27th September we will be restarting our early morning club called “Little Tigers”. The club will open from Monday to Friday and starts at 8.00am in the school hall. Children should arrive at school through the main reception entrance.

We cannot provide breakfast, but for those parents who need to drop their children off at school early we offer an opportunity for the children to play games, learn new skills and catch up on homework.

The school subsidises most of the costs of this club and so we only charge £1 per child per day (£5 for the whole week).

Please contact the School Office for details of our “Little Tigers” facility and to book a place.

Many thanks

James Gale

Signs of a possible hearing problem can include:

 Inattentiveness or poor concentration

  • Not responding when their name is called
  • Talking loudly and listening to the television at a high volume
  • Difficulty pinpointing where a sound is coming from
  • Mispronouncing words

Government Update

A change to the self-isolation period from 14 to 10 days has been announced, starting today.

People who test positive should continue to self-isolate for 10 days from onset of symptoms or 10 days from point of taking a positive test if asymptomatic.

Parents must inform the school if your child is ill and we recommend that if a child has any Covid symptoms that they get a test.  For speed and efficiency book a drive in or walk in test, you will get results within 24hours. Speak to our Pastoral team if you need help with this. To protect the school community please inform the school of the results of the test immediately as it may affect others in school. If someone in your family tests positive the rest of the family members must isolate for 10 days. If your child tests positive  please inform the school immediately via our email address
