How to contact us


We can be contacted via our email:


We will check this regularly but suggest you contact the school office if you have an urgency enquiry.



  • PE will continue on a Wednesday and children will come dressed in their kit on these days. As it gets colder, the children will need to wear longer sports trousers such as leggings or jogging bottoms.
  • Every morning the children will be offered water and a small snack, usually fruit but sometimes carrots as well. Milk is given to children in the afternoon and is free until they have their 5th birthday. At this point, you will need to register with Cool Milk and pay a termly fee for this to continue. Water is available all day and we remind the children at certain points to have a drink.
  • We will be using our Outside Classroom daily and in all weathers, so it is important that the children have suitable clothing for this. A waterproof coat is essential for wet weather and we recommend sun hat and lotion for those few sunny days we have in this country!
  • And finally.... please LABEL EVERYTHING that your child brings into school. That way, we can usually find it when it goes missing.


So what will the children be doing this year?


We know that the children will often tell you that they have just 'played' when you ask them what you have been up to during the day. The following pages will give you an insight into what they have been learning while they have been at school.
