Welcome Back

Dear Parents/ Carers,          

Welcome back to our new school year; we are glad to see all our children settled well into their new classes and are proud of the way in which they are conducting themselves calmly and positively around school. We especially welcome our two and three year olds starting in Nursery for the first time. We would like to welcome Mr Alvy is the new Reception class teacher; Mrs Harwood is the new nursery nurse in the reception class. Mrs J Dipper (Nursery Nurse) and Mrs J Smith (Nursery Nurse) have joined our Nursery team. Miss Fox is the new Y5/6 class teacher.  We wish Mrs Greenwood and Mrs Akudi all the very best as they are both leaving to have babies.


 We would be pleased to see parents and carers on Fridays at 2:30pm Celebration Assembly.


We understand that parents and carers will wish to know how their child is doing in school and I remind you that we have an Open Door Policy and encourage you to call in and speak to staff about any issues or concerns or just to celebrate how well your child is doing.

We are always working hard to improve standards, aim high and provide our children with positive and exciting learning experiences during the year. Please can we ask that you support us with these high standards by ensuring that your child follows school rules and also comes to school in correct uniform. In order for our children to feel safe they need to learn that our lives are full of rules we all need to follow. Jewellery is limited to a watch and single pair of stud earrings that can be removed by the child for PE. M0akeup, nail varnish and hair dye is not allowed and haircuts should be sensible. Long hair needs to be fastened back and sensible school shoes are needed so children can be free to play and work safely. Boots can be worn to and from school and in the playground on wet and wintry days but a change of footwear will then be needed in class. If you have any doubts about uniforms please ask as we wish to avoid unnecessary costs to parents and unnecessary attention being drawn to children. We are really pleased to see the majority of our children are already accessing enjoyable PE lessons in correct named kit.


Please see the events calendar and our website for more information so that you are fully informed and able to take part in the life of our school. Our first Parent Consultation Event will be on the 12th October between 3:15pm – 5:30pm. Early Years will run their consultations throughout the week commencing 10th October.

Thank You

Mrs L J Gallagher ( Headteacher)
