Parent Travel Survey

With the increase in traffic to the area, we are inviting parents/carers to complete a short survey on how your children are transported to school, what you feel are the main issues regarding transport and traffic management around the school and what your views are on potential solutions to ease traffic congestion around the school.

The survey will be available to complete until 22nd October. You can access the survey by clicking on the link below or scanning the QR code.

Reminder – Breakfast Club Start Time

Over the last few weeks we have found some children arriving for breakfast club before 8.00 a.m. Our breakfast club starts at 8.00 a.m. and children can access it from this time or after.

Many schools have a system, whereby, parents/carers sign their children into breakfast club each morning, but we have avoided this option as it is more inconvenient for our families to do this. However, if this continues it may be an option we need to explore.
Children are not allowed on the premises before 8.00 a.m. So if you are allowing your children to come to the school at 7.45a.m., which is when certain children are found to arrive, you are responsible for them and you are leaving them unsupervised until 8.00 a.m., as they will not be given access to the school.

We are not insured for children to be unsupervised on our premises before 8.00 a.m. and staff are not on duty at that time. Please help us to keep your children safe by sending them to school at the correct time.greggs

Mrs Cameron was a class teacher for 21 years before taking up the post of Principal Teacher. Mrs Cameron has enriched the lives of the children and staff in many ways.
