We are currently inviting all parents and children to down load the ClassDojo app. This is a free app that allows staff and families to keep in touch, share work and reward Dojo points. The site is very secure and requires individual passwords to enter school area.
If you would like to download the app and have access to your child’s Dojo account then please email Mrs Taylor and she will send you details on how to set this up.
As the Easter holidays approach staff have put together a list of fun activities that the children can try to complete!
These are available in the Home learning section.
Staff will still be contactable during the holidays but will not be posting daily activities of challenges on ClassDojo or school Facebook page.
Stay safe and have an eggcellent easter!
The school will continue to provide packed lunches for those who receive free school meals over the 2 week Easter holidays. The lunches can be collected from the hall doors between 12 – 12.15 pm each day (apart from Good Friday and Easter Monday). If you would like your child to receive a packed lunch then please send us a message.
Just a link to some important parental advice from the Government about keep children safe during the school closures.
We have received a letter to be distributed to all parents regarding school closures. Please read below:
As the situation with coronavirus continues to develop we are asking you to carefully consider whether or not your child needs to be in school.
We appreciate that the central government guidance around what constitutes a key worker is quite broad, however we would like to remind you that the reason schools are remaining open is primarily to ensure that those frontline workers who are key to helping this country get through this situation, can get to work.
Each school will have different levels of demand for these places and may handle this situation differently in order to ensure the welfare of all staff and children. We ask you to respect any restrictions your school may put in place to help them cope during these challenging times.
Finally can we remind you that in line with Public Health England guidance, the best place for your child, wherever possible is at home with you, helping to maintain good social distancing for our wider community.

Any children who are entitled to Free School meals will be able to come into school to pick up and take away a packed lunch. Can you please contact the school before midday today (20.3.2020) if you would like to take up this offer?
