An emotional week as we said goodbye to our Y6 children with a leavers' lunch and presentation ceremony.

We send them onwards and upwards reaching for the sky and wishing them all the best for their futures. 

We saw the last of the sports days enjoyed by Class 1 and Class 3 with a visit from Rob's Icecream van on the hottest day to cool us down. Thank you to the PTA for this treat  

We hope that you all have a safe and restful summer break see you in September!

 School Lunch Menu 

We look forward to a slice of normality and will be eating lunch in the hall from the Autumn Term. Due to a child being identified as having a nut allergy we would politely ask that no nuts or nut-based products ie peanut butter are sent into school in packed lunches or as snacks. Many thanks

Safeguarding your children

If there is a change to the collection arrangements of your child at the end of the school day, then you must inform us via a telephone call to the school office or a message in the link books provided for such communication. 

Thank you

Dental / Medical appointments 

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

Supporting Parents Helpfinder (Young Minds)
Times are tough for many people right now. Parents find themselves pulled in many different direction and children may be struggling being in the house for so much longer than usual.
A mixture of concern about covid, work from home and children at home, along with a possible financial impact make for a stressful household.
Young Minds have created a useful 'Supporting Parents Helpfinder'. By answering six questions, parents can find out how to support their child's mental health during the pandemic (and beyond).
Find the help finder here: https://youngminds.org.uk/supporting-parents-helpfinder/

 

Sleep is an important part of everybody's well being 

  • Does your child struggle with their sleep?
  • Would you like to access support to help to improve sleep and bedtime routine?
  • Would you like to meet other parents/carers to share and discuss experiences?
