Breakfast & After School Club

Following careful consideration after reviewing our risk assessments, ensuring we are continuing to follow the DfE guidelines, as well taking into account the delay in building works, breakfast and after – school club will not re-open this half – term. This will be reviewed during the week 19th October. This decision once again has not been taken lightly and we apologise for the inconvenience. Thank-you for your continued support and understanding.

Transition arrangements

Our new Reception children had their first transition session today. They will have one a week until they start full time on 19th October. All other year groups will visit their new class on Friday 9th October and will then be in their new class permanently from Friday 16th October. We will let you know if there are any changes to start and finish times in a couple of weeks.

Parent Consultations

These will be telephone consultations with your child’s current teacher. Letters will be sent home on Monday.

PE kit

All children need to have their PE kit in school to be able to participate as we are unable to lend spare PE kits.

Hello Yellow Day Friday 9th October

This year once again we will be supporting ‘Hello Yellow’ day which is organised by the charity ‘Young minds’, to raise awareness of children’s mental health and wellbeing. The charity is leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges.

On 9th October, children can come to school in non-uniform either dressed like sunshine from head to toe or wearing a splash of yellow (this could be something small and simple like socks, headband, or sunglasses.)

There will be no charge for this but if you wish to donate you can do so online at:
