Opening Hours

8.00 am to 4.30 pm Monday to Friday

From Monday 2nd November, we will become a “closed office”. This means that we will no longer accept items during the day such as lunch boxes, coats, water bottles, break-time fruit snacks, PE kits etc. Please ensure your child has everything with them that they need for the day when they arrive at school.

Q & A’s

  • What happens if your child doesn’t have their lunch box? They will have a hot dinner, which you will need to pay for.
  • What happens if your child doesn’t have their PE kit? They will have to use their indoor kit, (which should be kept in school at all times) or they will have to do PE in their uniform.
  • Please ensure your child has all the outdoor clothing they may need for the weather conditions throughout the day.

Please be assured that we are here to help you whenever we can, but due to the amount of items being dropped off and due to the current restrictions, we have no alternative than to refuse items for the safety of everyone and so that staff members are not moving between bubbles.


All letters that have been sent out by email are now loaded onto the website under the Parents & Families tab. Please use this useful section if you think you may not have received a letter or need to check some details. Please contact the office if you need a paper copy sending with your child. We will only do this if a printed letter is needed – you can email a reply for a slip and many of the letters are for information purposes.

Changes to end of the day collections

Nursery & Reception

Please write any changes in your child’s Home School Diary. If your change is during the school day, please try to ring before 1.00 pm if you can.

Years 1 to 6

Please email your child’s class teacher to notify them of any changes. If your change is during the school day, please try to ring before 1.00 pm if you can.

Pupils who have an appointment

If you child has an appointment during the school day please inform their class teacher and the office. Please allow plenty of time to collect your child, as although messages are sent to class busy children & staff will often forget! Please bring a copy of your appointment with you so that we can take a copy to keep on file.

Contact details

You will receive a data sheet once per year. Please make sure you check all the details are correct then sign and return to the office. At other times, please email any changes or come to the office to fill in a form. We are sorry but changes over the phone are not accepted.

Appointments to meet with staff

We ask that you call or email to request an appointment with staff and do not turn up without one, in order to avoid disappointment. All class issues must be discussed with the class teacher before asking for a meeting with Mrs Curtis.


Thank you for your understanding and co-operation
