Dear Parents and Carers


You will all have heard the announcement by Boris Johnson today that schools are required to close from the end of the school day on Friday for all children except those in particular designated groups.


I know that you must have so many questions-as soon as we have further guidance we will be able to answer them for you.


We are expecting to receive more detailed information and as soon as we have that, we will be contacting all parents.


In the meantime, I want to assure you that I and all the staff will continue to work with the best interests of your children at heart and will do everything possible to minimise the impact of this current crisis on their education over the next few months.


I will be in touch again as soon as we know more - please watch out for e mails and for updates on the school website.

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!
