Welcome to our School

Please click here to see a message introducing our unique school & click HERE to see our  brilliant 'virtual tour' of our school

Guidance from Government, updated 6.1.21:

 The school remains open (8.30am-3.30pm Mon-Fri) and fully staffed for our working families/ key worker families as well as vulnerable children. We suggest that if your child/ren attends the schools during this period, that they attend each day to keep consistency, both for them and the school – but this will be your decision.

If you do require a place, please inform the school asap, letting us know which days, if not a full week, and we ask that you get a letter, on letter headed company paper (or an email from your employer), to confirm you are a key worker/ still continuing to work during this time. Drop off & Collection will be via the main doors only. Children who are in school will also be working on the school’s remote/ home learning & staff will contact every family at least once a week to support home learning. Please be aware that some of the telephone calls to you may be on a withheld number.     If you have a child in the Junior school and are struggling with access to technology/ Internet, please contact us to discuss how we can support you.

Please do contact us if you have any questions or concerns. You can do this by phone, to the enquiry@ emails or to the year group emails directly to your child’s class teachers. Please also remember that we are still here to support you in any way we can so please do contact us if you need any support or advice for anything and we’ll help in any way we can!

 Take care and stay safe.

Covid-19 symptoms? What to do...

During the Spring term many children get common coughs and colds. We understand that many Parents/Carers are a little unsure whether to send their children to school.

If your child develops any symptoms of an illness, especially a persistent cough, high temperature and/or loss of taste/smell or symptoms of a cold/flu, you and anyone in your household must immediately self-isolate until you receive the results of your test.   If the test is positive, you must continue to self-isolate for 10 days from when the symptoms started or follow the Test & Trace isolation period if they contact you. Anyone in the household must also continue to self-isolate for a total of 10 days.

If the test is negative, everyone in your household no longer needs to self-isolate and can return to normal.  At all times, as we always expect, please call/email the school by 9.15am to inform us as to why your child is not in school and keep us informed. Thank you for your support in these unusual times.

We have marked out and are applying a strict one way system in the main reception area and around our school building.

We expect anyone coming into school to follow the notices, markings & instructions of staff. 

Please wear a face mask around our school.

We want to say, a huge THANK YOU to all the donors who have sent in cheques or 'presents' to our school after hearing us on Radio 4/ reading the article on BBConline. It was not why we did the report, but it is lovely that so many people wanted to help us - it's been amazing!
