It has come to our attention that a group of Upper Key Stage 2 children are arriving on the school site, prior to the start of the school day, and then leaving again to go across to the shop.
The playground and skipping area are supervised by staff from 8.30am in the morning. We are not in a position to supervise the children prior to this time.
However, please can we ask that if parents need to drop their children off before this time in the mornings that the children are sent to the office where they can be supervised or are booked into breakfast club.
We would appreciate your co-operation with this matter.
Dear Parent/ Guardian,
In light of the recent weather forecast, we would like to inform you about how we deal with any severe weather, especially snow, which may affect the school.
Each day of any severe weather the leadership team in school will make an assessment about whether it is safe and practical to open the school to pupils. This decision will be made as soon as is possible in the morning.
You will be informed by our text and email service if the school is to close. It is therefore vital that you inform us if you have changed your mobile number or email address. We will also post the information on our school website and twitter feed.
If you do not hear anything from us, the school will be open. Closure information will also be shared with local radio stations, BBC news and BBC spotlight for them to use in their bulletins.
Please be assured that we would only decide to close our school in exceptional circumstances where the safety of your child is the primary concern. On occasion this may be due to the availability of teaching staff who travel some distance to reach school, rather than purely conditions for pupils getting to school.
As you will understand if the school is closed then there will be no breakfast and after school club.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the school office
