PARENT/CARER FORUM

Thanks to everyone who came along to our first meeting of the year to find out about the ‘We are Warriors!’ theme and our School Development Plan priorities for the year ahead. Find out more on our Parent & Carer Forum page.

SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT PRIORITIES

This year we will be focusing on 5 main School Development Priorities:
1) All pupils will be challenged and move on to more difficult work as appropriate, especially in Maths
2) Review and improve spelling strategies
3) Deepen writing experiences in RE
4) Broaden the curriculum with effective outdoor learning experiences
5) Pupils rarely miss a day at school
We have also worked with a range of stakeholders on our Home-School Agreement. You can read this by clicking on the document below.

ORANGES

Due to severe allergies we ask that children do not bring oranges or anything similar e.g. satsumas, mandarins, to school - even peeled ones now. Thanks for your support with this.

UNIFORM

Thanks to everyone who have been making a real effort to improve the smartness of our school uniform across the school. We will now be focusing on ensuring that socks or tights are plain black, blue, grey or white.

Please remember that we also ask that hairbands and bows are small and not multi-coloured and that nail varnish is not worn to school. Thanks again for your cooperation. The School Uniform policy can be seen below.

OFSTED INSPECTION

We are pleased to inform you that at our recent OFSTED inspection, the school continues to be GOOD and safeguarding is effective. Thanks to all pupils, staff, Governors and parents/ carers for your support and hard work in achieving this excellent grading for our school. You can read the report on our Ofsted page.
