GETTING TO SCHOOL - We would encourage all children to walk to school - there are lots of benefits: it's healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. We do also have bike racks for those children coming to school on their bikes and scooters. If you need to travel by car, please drive with care and park wisely.
ABSENCES - If your child is unwell please call 01784 227960, press option 1 and leave a message on our absence line with your child's name, class and reason for absence.
LATENESS - Of course we understand that there are occasionally reasons why children may be late to school, however please remember that it is very unsettling for your child. Persistent lateness will result in further action. If for any reason you will be late collecting your child please telephone the school office to advise what alternative arrangements you have made.
