A Message from Mrs Collier

Dear Parents and Carers

We have welcomed our children back into school including our new Reception children.  We would like to formally welcome all the new families who have joined us this term.


Please refer to the letters e-mailed to all parents on September 2nd, and our weekly Newsletters, regarding our Covid safe procedures for keeping our children safe in the Autumn Term. Copies of the letters are attached to  the tabs next to this on this website.

Our start and end of day procedures are designed to get all of our children on site for a normal start to the day at 8.55 am with registration.


Parents are requested to drop their children off at the edge of the village green and allow their child to independently join their class bubble. The staff from their bubble will be there to greet them and escort them in to school.


Siblings – all families with more than one child attending 8.45am and 3.10pm

Individual children – one child only in the school 8.55am and 3.20pm

Parents should not come on to the green and should leave the car park ASAP to ensure the ongoing safety of all our children and staff.


If you need to collect your child outside of these times for any reason please ring the school office. Parents continue to not be allowed on site to minimise risk.

Once you have dropped off your child, please vacate the vicinity of the school as quickly as possible to ensure social distancing can be maintained. Gates should not be blocked.


Collection will be from 3pm to 3.20pm- the children will be brought to the gates by a member of staff when you arrive. Please vacate the area immediately afterwards to avoid congestion.

Please also refer to the UK Government advice for parents at the following web address:-


Thank you.

Children In Need


We raised £585.17!

We bounced and flipped our way to raise money for Pudsey with great success!






We are very pleased to announce that we have just achieved the

Gold Mark Sports Award.

Mrs Fitch has worked tirelessly during the past year to create opportunities for our children to participate in a wide range of sports both here at school and at off site events.

Thank you for your support with ferrying children around - the assessor was extremely impressed by the range of activities on offer in a school with only 42 children!

Well done to Mrs Fitch and the children!
