Summer Term After School Clubs

After School clubs have been allocated.  Please ensure you do not send your child to a club unless you have received a letter confirming their place. Payment for clubs is via ParentPay but please bear with us as it is taking time to add all the clubs and children on.

Please ensure your child is collected from the after school club at the correct time. If you are over 10 minutes late they will be taken to Raglan Wrap Club where you may incur a charge.

Parent Governor Elections

There are two vacancies on the Governing Body, one for a parent in the Infant School and one in the Junior School. Today the Headteacher has notified parents of the vacancies and the process of electing two new governors will begin. For further details please visit our website. Nominations close on Thursday 10th May at 12 noon. If there is more than one nomination in each school then an election (vote) will be held. Further details will be sent after the closing date.


We have had a complaint from a neighbour in Amberly Road about a parent (White Nissan Juke) regularly parking across part of their drive.  They have a disabled son and needs constant access in an out of their driveway. Please be considerate to our neighbours and park responsibly. If you notice any parking issues please Enfield Parking Enforcement Team by clicking here or telephone 0208 360 1000.

Collection Arrangements

If you are going to be late collecting your child at the end of the day please call the office before 3.00pm to allow us to get the message to the teachers. The office should be informed of any regular changes to the end of day collection and any changes to your own contact details and anyone else you have specified as a contact. If you are more than 10 minutes late collecting your child they will be taken to Raglan Wrap where you will incur a charge.

Happy Chicks

Happily all 15 chicks have hatched and the children and staff have really enjoyed going to check on their progress over the past week. The children were fascinated to see how the chicks changed from when they first emerged with wet down to become the lovely fluffy, yellow chicks that they all recognise. The chicks have been put into a small run so that the children can better see them feeding and move around. They are now beginning to get a few feathers, it really is amazing how quickly they grow and change.
