The School Day Begins

The school day begins with registration at 8:55am and we really appreciate prompt time-keeping to get the children off to a good start. Each day we begin with reinforcing basic skills in Maths and English so it is vital that your child is in on time and ready to learn.

Reading diaries should be signed each night and will be checked on a Monday. Please spend time discussing the book that your child brings home with them. We also encourage the children to read a range of other texts in addition to their home-school reading book. We would be grateful if you could comment on other books that your child reads at home.

UNICEF Rights and Responsibility Article 16


Children have a right to privacy. The law should protect them from attacks against their way of life, their good name, their families and their homes.


School Council

Our council representatives were chosen by the class in a democratic vote. Each child performed a speech to persuade the class to vote for them. Well done to everyone who put their name forward. Our winners were:

Isla and David (Y6 Representatives)

Year 6 also represent Reception class as School Council members. The representatives are:

Ava and  (Reception Representatives)


Golden Apples

We have promised to try our best to gain our 5 leaves for : Service, Community, Justice, Friendship and Creation.

Children's University

At the end of Year 6, we have the opportunity to graduate from Children's University (as long as we have earned enough credits). We gain credits through attending after school clubs, participating in sports teams for the school, jobs we do in school and also by having our Children's University passports stamped at learning destinations for example: museums and clubs outside of school. Passports are available to purchase from the school office.

We are hoping that we will all graduate this year.


Study Support

You are encouraged to attend Study Support on Thursday after school as you will have help, if needed, in addition to having access to the resources in school.

Spelling website for support:
