Good attendance is necessary for all children, research shows that children who attend school regularly and punctually perform better overall and in their later lives. Therefore, the Government expects the level of school attendance for all primary aged pupils to be no lower than 97%
There have been a lot of complaints recently regarding parking around school before and after school. Please be considerate when parking, as some parents with pushchairs have not been able to get past due to parking on corners of the streets and residents have been blocked in.
We have several children in school with severe nut allergies, which require an Epi Pen. Please do not send your child into school with any nuts or nut products e.g Nutella spread for snack or lunch, as this could be life threatening to these children.

This app teaches parents and children together about meditation for different age levels. They focus on Calm, Kindness, and Bedtime.

Mindfulness Techniques

Children can listen to this at home- just like they would have done in school during our PSHE lessons.



Attending school every day and on time gives our children the best opportunities to develop their potential to the full. Please ensure your child is in school and on time. If you need further support to achieve this, please contact Mrs Troy at school.

Positive Behaviours – School Bee Rules

Class teachers will award Dojo points to children who demonstrate these behaviours. Certificates and rewards will be given during our whole school assemblies. Certificates include Kindness Award, Head teacher Award, class achievement award, Class Jigsaw Award.  Please share with us any examples of your child demonstrating these values at home so we can celebrate them in school too!
