Welcome Back to School

Dear Parents,


Welcome back to school, we hope that you have all had a fantastic break over the summer.  We are looking forward to an exciting and busy term and would like to make you aware of some dates and changes over the next few weeks:


  • Diary Dates - please refer to the newsletter from last term for diary dates, which have also been added to the website and can be found here -
  • School Direct Trainees - We are pleased to welcome Miss Katie Day and Mr Michael Allen into Classes 2 and 3 respectively.  They will be with us for the whole year whilst they are studying for their PGCE qualification.
  • Start Times - from week commencing 17 September the gate opening time will change to the slightly later time of 08:50 and children will go straight into school ready to start the day at 9:00am promptly.  The gate will be locked at 08:55.
  • Flu Vaccinations - These will take place on 15th October 2018 for Reception to Year 5.  Letters will be coming home with children today which need to be returned before the end of the week, please.
  • Communications - We are trying to make our communication with parents more streamlined and use less paper.  Therefore, short messages will be sent by text,  letters not requiring a reply will be sent by email and posted on the website and letters requiring a signature will be sent home with children.
  • Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need further information or need to talk to me,


    Best regards,
