We will use our manners and share nicely during our school day. We respond to scripture in different creative ways e.g. singing, dancing, drawing and painting

Partnership with Parents, carers, Governors, the parish, and wider community.

We invite our parents, carers, Governors to different events during the year to celebrate our learning and achievements. We attend church to celebrate with our parish family during the school year. We raise money at different times of the year for the wider community. 




Useful information 

 Please send a small, healthy snack (just 1 item) into school with your child in a disposable named bag and a named water bottle, no juice please. 

Please ensure ALL your child’s clothing has names on it. As they go through the wash names do tend to fade so please keep checking to ensure that things don’t go missing, especially jumpers and cardigans. 

School lunches 

We are currently providing sandwiches for school dinners with a choice of ham, cheese or tuna and a choice of fish and chips each Friday 

If you wish to provide you child with a packed lunch could it please be in a named disposable bag.
