We have appointed a new Teacher, Mr Michael Richards, who will be joining us after the Easter holidays.


School will make every effort to stay open during the poor weather. However, if school does need to close we will inform parents in the following ways:

Text message and Via the council website –

Please make sure you have your letter somewhere accessible so that you know our procedure (letter sent out to all parents 27th November 2015) – if you would like another copy please ask at the school office or check on our website.


Please let your friends and neighbours know our fabulous nursery is led by a qualified teacher and we still have some places for September 2016 – please call into the school office for an application form. Please be aware this is a completely separate provision from Cots & Tots day care. Cots & Tots are not part of our school they rent space only.


Recently a number of children have started to play on the gardens and surrounding walls at the front of school. This is very dangerous. Would parents please stop children going onto the gardens and walls. Thank you.


Unit 4 Science Day is on Thursday, 24th March. As part of our Unit 4 topic ‘Prove it?’ we will be having a fun packed day of scientific experiments in school.

Yours sincerely

Julia Sandiford-Mitchell
