I hope you've all enjoyed your Easter break, eaten lots of chocolate and had super fun with your families!




We will be teaching the children in their classes this term and returning to a more ‘normal’ timetable. 



There is a free 'Meet the Author' session that you can register to enjoy. The author is Emma

Sandford who will read her new book: “The Problem with Poppy” , which is about a porcupine who

struggles to make friends because of the barriers she puts up.


The author session will be followed immediately by an interactive craft-along session with Laura

and Izzy from Visyon.


The event is on Tuesday 1 June at 10am on zoom.


For booking details download the flyer below.


Covid-19 Routines:


It's extremely important that we all do our bit to keep everyone in school safe.


Handwashing and sanitising will remain a big part of our school routine.


Your temperature will be taken before you enter school in a morning.


Additional cleaning of tables, chairs and resources that cannot be quarantined,

 will take place throughout the day.


Everyday resources such as stationery and books will not be shared. However,

 some resources will need to be used by different people throughout the week.

 These resources will be quarantined for 72 hours before being used by

 another person.


Windows and interior doors will be left open throughout the day to allow

 classrooms to be well-ventilated and to minimise the use of door handles.


Breaktimes will be staggered slightly to enable the main exits /

 entrances, cloakroom areas and toilets to be less crowded.


Teachers and support staff may wear face coverings whilst in lessons and around school. 


School Uniform

Please come to school in school uniform except on

 PE days when school PE kit should be worn.

Full details are in the newsletter sent out by Ms. Mason.


PE Days

Your PE sessions this term are on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Please do not wear any jewellery on these days and ensure long hair is tied back.




Written homework will be set each week for either English and Maths as an

 assignment on Teams and will be 'given out' on Fridays.  

In addition, spelling activites and times tables will be set fortnightly.

You will need to have completed it by the following Thursday. The tasks will be

 clearly explained in class each week.


Reading is also a very important part of your weekly homework. Please make

 sure to read regularly at home. Those pupils who are still on the school's

 reading scheme will be heard read by a member ofstaff in school also.


Book Changing

Once you have finished your reading book you can bring it into school to

 change on either Mondaysor Thursdays only. This is so we can quarantine the

 books for 72 hours before giving it to someone else.





Please keep checking this webpage for updates and information.

 Parents and guardians will continue to receive emails and texts

 regarding whole school or urgent issues.

Any questions at all please just email me:


Warm wishes

Mrs. Lord
