Current Term Correspondence

This area of the school website contains all letters sent to parents in this current term. We hope this will help families find any necessary and relevant letters quickly and easily, as we know how easy it is to misplace and lose important correspondence with the very busy lives families lead.

The area is split into Whole School Correspondence, Year 3 - 6 Correspondence respectively.

COVID-19 School Risk Assessment In preparation for expanding school capacity risks and hazards in all areas of school life have been considered by school leaders. Working in collaboration with school staff, Union representatives, Governors and families we have set out our intended control measures. The risk assessment will remain a live document and will be updated in collaboration with the school community to ensure that we can, together, keep the risks of infection to an absolute minimum whilst welcoming back larger groups of children.
