Important Information

All children must arrive at school on time in accordance with their family group time between 8:30 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.  Parents and Carers are not currently allowed on the school premise and must leave their children to enter at the Hospital street entrance where a number of school staff including Mrs Ricketts, our Family Support Worker, are stationed to escort children to their classes.  Mrs Warman is  also available each morning at the Hospital Street entrance to take lunch money payments and pass on any queries or concerns to teaching staff. 

We provide free toast every morning which children can eat in their classrooms during registration and settling in time. 

Pupils who arrive late for school lose valuable learning time.

If you are 5 minutes late every day that adds up to over 3 days lost each year!

If you are experiencing difficulties in bringing your child to school on time please visit the school office to arrange an appointment to speak with Mrs Ricketts, our Family Support Worker.

Please be aware we have a few local clubs in the community who are able to bring your child to school and pick them from school. For more information please visit the Community section on our website.

All early drop offs and collections MUST be arranged through the Head Teacher.
