Christmas productions

A big well done to all the children and staff from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 for the terrific Christmas production they performed last week!  We received some lovely feedback. This week it’s the turn of KS2 and we wish them well.


Public Health England have asked school to alert parents to the increase in cases of seasonal influenza (or flu).  Symptoms can come on very quickly and include a sudden fever, an aching body, feeling very tired and a dry cough.  If you or your child are feeling unwell, you should not come to school and stay away from school for at least 24 hours after the fever subsides.  If your child has been sick, they should stay off school for 48 hours as usual.  Thank you for your support with this.

Christmas holidays

Please note that school closes this Friday, 20th December at 2pm after ‘Carols round the Tree’ at 1.15pm. May we take this opportunity to wish all our pupils, parents and carers, grandparents and friends a very merry Christmas and all the very best for 2020!  School starts again on Tuesday 7th January at 8.55am.

KS2 school meal accounts

Please check your child’s account and if there are any arrears for unpaid meals, please make payment asap and before the end of term at the latest. Many thanks.
