PCC Information

As we prepare to begin our holiday, I would like to thank parents, pupils and staff for the way they have worked together during this term

We should take pride in all we have achieved as a school community.

Your children have adapted brilliantly to all of the changes that we have made here to ensure that the school environment is as Covid-secure as possible and have worked productively with their teachers over the past term, making very pleasing progress indeed.

We have been extremely fortunate in being able to keep school open until the final week of term.

Our new pupils have settled in well and quickly became part of our community.

School staff have faced new and difficult challenges and have continued to provide a stable, safe and caring community for our learners.

Although we haven’t been able to welcome you into the school building as we do under normal circumstances you have continued to support the school in many ways. We hope, at some point in 2021 we will be able to resume all the community events that are normally an integral part of our school life.

Our fund-raising raffle raised an amazing £593.50 – thank you for your donations of chocolate and money and supporting us by buying tickets. This money will be used to provide additional resources for all pupils in the school.

Please read the attached PCC document which explains arrangements for January. If you are eligible to use the key worker provision mentioned in the document, please use this booking form shared on Class Dojo


If these arrangements change in any way, we will let you know via ClassDojo.

If your child, or any member of your household has Covid-19 symptoms during the holiday period please continue to request a test by phoning 119 or using the online portal

If your child has a positive Covid test result over the holiday period please email your child’s name, year group and school to Please note that the self-isolation period is now 10 days.


On behalf of the staff I would like to wish all families a restful and relaxing break.


First Lego League Discover

We were recently fortunate enough to be able to secure funding for equipment for Class 1 and 2 to participate in the First Lego League Discover Playmakers season. This event aims to develop early STEM education through play.

The pupils were delighted when the Lego sets we will need to join in the programme arrived recently and can’t wait to get started in the new year.
