Belong, Believe, Achieve, Succeed



Here in our school

Let us be peaceful at all times

Let our rooms be full of happiness

and respect for each other.

Let love be in our hearts

With kindness and compassion for all.

Let us remember

In learning together,

We grow together

And succeed together.


A reminder that there is now no requirement for close contacts to self-isolate unless they return a positive test for Coronavirus.

All children should arrive between 8.45 and 9.00 a.m. at the very latest.

Arrangements in the morning remain as they were last term: We will greet children at the gate; FS can walk straight into their outdoor area, KS1 children can walk up the path and onto the playground, Classes 4, 5 and 6 go through the car park and in through the front door and Classes 7, 8 and 9 go through the car park and straight into their classrooms.

Children can be collected from the playground: FS from their outdoor area at 3.20 p.m., KS1 at 3.20 p.m. and KS2 at 3.30 p.m. - the upper juniors will leave via the front door.

We continue to encourage parents to wear a mask when bringing or collecting children and wait until after 9.00 to approach the school office.

Coronavirus - symptoms in children

Research from the COVID Study App shows that over half of children who test positive for coronavirus do not present with the "typical" 3 symptoms of a persistent cough, temperature or loss of taste/smell.

The top five symptoms of coronavirus in children are:

  1. Fatigue
  2. Headache
  3. Fever
  4. Sore throat
  5. Loss of appetite

One in six children have also displayed a skin rash.


It is essential that we all act to protect our mental health as well as our physical health. To support the mental health and well-being of children and families across our communities, Team Mental Health and EdStart Sports Coaching have partnered to design and develop a range of fun 'Wellbeing Through Sport' activities to do at home.
