Weekly Newsletter - 17/03/23


Dear Parents and Carers,

Parents Evenings

We are looking forward to sharing all of the wonderful things your children have been learning with you during parents evening next week- Tuesday 21st and Wednesday 22nd March. If you are unable to attend your parents evening appointment please let your child’s teacher know in advance where possible.

Staff Car Park

A reminder that the staff car park is for staff vehicles only. Unless the school has given you permission, please do not drop your child off or park your vehicle in the car park. The safety of our children is paramount so please park elsewhere and walk into the school. Please make sure that you use the green gate in the KS2 playground to access the school office in the morning and do not walk through the car park.

Our School Curriculum

Please take a look at our school website to see what your children are learning here you will find all of the information about each subject and information for each year group. You will also find lots of photographs of the children participating in different lessons on our facebook page and our school blog in the latest news section of our website.

RSHE Parent Workshop - Wednesday 22nd March at 9:15am or 2:30pm

This workshop is to discuss the teaching of Relationship, Sex and Health education (RSHE) which we will begin to teach next half term. RSHE is a compulsory part of the curriculum however there are some lessons that are not compulsory. This workshop will explain why we teach RSHE, what we teach and what your rights are as a parent. We welcome you to come and find out exactly what we will be teaching​ and to express any concerns you may have . You can also look at our RSHE policy on our school website which will help to answer some questions about what we teach in each year group.

ABACUS Afterschool Club

There has been lots of interest in ABACUS Afterschool Club but there have only been a small number of forms handed back in to register. Please make sure that all forms are returned as as soon as possible to ensure that ABACUS is able to open officially on the 17th April. ABACUS will be attending Parents Evening on 21st and 22nd March if you have any questions.

Parent View

We would love to hear from you. Parent View is a tool used by OFSTED to measure parents' views of school. It is a short survey asking you to rate the school against a few statements.

We would really appreciate it if you could do the following:
Go to: and click on the "Give Your Views Now"

Firstly, it will ask you to register and then a password will be sent to your email quite promptly which you will need to log in and complete the survey.

Please take a few minutes to help reflect your views and your support for the school.
