Secondary School Applications NOW LIVE

The application process can now be completed for any Year 6 pupil moving to Year 7 at secondary school in September 2019.

This can be accessed here.

Please note the deadlines of 31 October 2018 and 30 November 2018.


With the advent of the hot sunny weather, we ask that pupils have suncream applied before school.

If you wish to provide suncream for a top up during the day, then pupils must be able to apply this themselves.

Any bottles should be clearly labelled & handed to staff to prevent it being shared with other pupils as this may lead to allergic reactions.

Thank you.

Race for Life Details – Friday 22nd June

Main School Information

Pupils should attend in normal uniform in the morning, and bring their P.E kits and a water bottle to keep them hydrated.

After lunch, they will change into either their PE kits or if they wish, as it is Race for Life, they may dress up in funny outfits, preferably blue, pink or white.

If you wish they can also bring blue and pink face paints to decorate their faces.

Please can all funny outfits, face paints and P.E kits be brought in a separate bag. In addition to this if you can provide 2 safety pins to pin the badges on the back of the children’s top, it would be appreciated. The badges are being decorated in school.

Anyone wishing to attend to cheer on the pupils should arrive for 1.30pm; we will admit parents/carers via the side gate accessible via the carpark rather than the main school gates.

Nursery Information

Pupils should come dressed for the Race; again funny outfits are acceptable.

However, due to the fact that nursery will be doing this in their own foundation stage outdoor area, we regret that parents/carers cannot be admitted for this year group.
