Important information: 

We are asking that all children bring in a water bottle to school every day. Please can this be clearly named and the children will be able to access their drinks as they want them throughout the school day.

We love to learn outside in ALL weather! So please ensure that your child has a waterproof coat and wellies in school at all times so they do not miss out. Please ensure that your child is in a warm coat with gloves and a hat available at all times.

Accidents happen, so it is important that all children have a spare set of clothes along with wet wipes in a plastic bag, named and on their pegs.

Please ensure that you read with your child at least 3 times per week and that you sign and comment in their reading diary when you do so.

Our PE kit is the school blue jogging trousers and school sweatshirt. We will notify you of our PE day later in the Autumn term.


Pupils MUST use a book bag to transport books and homework to and from school. Large rucksacks will not be allowed due to lack of storage space.
