For those parents that wish to pay for school lunches on a weekly basis we would be most grateful if dinner monies could be sent in to school on a Monday morning in a sealed and clearly marked envelope, this is due to a change in our banking arrangements.  

Lunches can still be paid in advance either monthly, 1/2 termly or termly if you should wish by cash or cheque payment(made payable to Telford & Wrekin). These payments cannot be made via the schools online payment system. Any monies will be carried over for absence or trips that occur. 

Many thanks Mrs Case

The school council would like to thank every one

In the event of extreme weather and a possible school closure we will aim to make a decision as early as possible, 7:30 am on the day or the evening before based on the severity of the forecast. Parents will be informed in the following ways

  • Direct text from the school and social media platforms 
  • Shropshire Council School closure page (follow link below)
  • Local radio

Although we are in the Spring Term the weather is far from Springlike, but we still endeavour to get the children out into the fresh air even if the elements are a little inclement. Therefore please ensure that your child/ren have suitably warm outdoor coats etc to ensure their well being.

School Play Equipment and Areas

We appreciate that the pupils enjoy to remain on school property at the end of the school day but we would like to remind parents that pupils and siblings are not allowed to play on or around the play equipment including the traversing wall, tyre park or equipment in the barked areas.

This is because for insurance purposes children should only use school equipment when a teacher is present / supervising. We would request that you do not let younger siblings use it while they are waiting at the beginning or the end of the day. 

Dental / Medical appointments 

Where possible these appointments should be sought out of school hours, so as not to impede your child's learning, but in the event that this is not possible then it is imperative that the appointment card or letter is bought to the school office, so the correct absence code can be

Welcome back to the Spring Term. Thanks to your wonderful support with our fund raising efforts during the Autumn term you raised £153. Halloween Disco, £427. Christmas Hampers, £96. Bags2School and £86. joint Carol Service. This has helped to part fund activities like the pantomime and equipment such as the Phonics Play subscription which is used daily throughout the school.

This brings us to once again call on your support with the 100 club. This was a fantastic fundraiser last year and therefore we would like to recreate it again. Letters went out on Friday and we hope we can count on your generosity again. This is open to all including family & friends so get them signed up too. 

The letter is available from the PTA website page which you can access by clicking on the PTA picture above.
