    Your child settling in
    Good afternoon, We are impressed with how the children have settled into school and want to thank you for your support during the implementation of our arrangements in relation to our school opening for all children this term. Normally at this time of year we give you the opportunity to meet with your child's class teacher to discuss how well they are settling into school. Unfortunately due to the current restrictions on people coming into school we are unable to offer face to face meetings. If you would like a phone call from your child's teacher in relation to this please message them on Class Dojo to arrange a mutually convenient time

    Notification of proposal for variation to the admission arrangements for September 2021
    Dear parents/carers, We are required to let you know that we are proposing to vary the over subscription criteria to our admissions policy for the academic year 2021/2022. This is due to criteria 4 & 5 requiring proof of regular church attendance. However, during the current Covid-19 pandemic places of worship have been closed and we need to take this into account. Attached is a letter from our vice chair of governors with the proposed wording that will be added to our over subscription criteria to address this issue. Please be aware that this is a notification and not a consultation so we do not need you to respond. Many thanks
