Health and Safety

Please could we ask that when you are dropping off and collecting children from Year 1 and Reception that you do not let your children use or climb on the equipment in the outdoor area.

Thank  you.

Welcome back to a new school year!

We would like to welcome Miss Cottrill to the staff team. She will be teaching Reception whilst Miss Ramsden is on maternity leave. Everyone has settled back into the new term well and we have been very impressed with our new Reception children who have had a fantastic first few days in school. We also have a number of new children who have joined us in different year groups so welcome to all of them and their families.  Could we just remind families that the car park is for staff use only for health and safety reasons. There is a car park in the village. Thank you.


Data Collection forms

These will be sent home over the next couple of weeks. Please can you return to the office as soon as possible to ensure that the information we hold is up to date.  If you have informed us on the data forms that your child has asthma, please could you ensure that there is an inhaler, which is in date, in school.


Staffing update

Mr Dawson will take on the role of Acting Deputy Head for the coming year, whilst Miss Ramsden is on maternity leave.


Baby news

Congratulations to Miss Ramsden whose son was born on Tuesday weighing 8lbs 4 ozs.
