Parent Governors

Congratulations to Meyrem Tompson (Infants) and Lisa Chadwick (Juniors) who were both elected as Parent Governors before the half term break. A big thank you to all that put themselves forward for the role.  Details of the vote can be found on the school website. Turnout for voting was 27.5% in the Infants and 20.1% in the Juniors. More votes were cast with the online system than the previous vote although a significant number of votes were discounted because of incorrect security codes or duplicate voting.

Head Lice

We have head lice in the Infants School, please check your child’s hair on a regular basis and treat as necessary.

Travel Survey

We are conducting a survey on how the children get to and from school. Could you click on the survey which applies to your child's key stage and complete the questions on the survey.  Click here for Infant School    Click here for Junior School
