General Information

  • We are  open to children from 2 years of age.  If you would like more information, please visit our Early Years page.  Alternatively please see Mrs Stubbs in the school office where she can give you more information.
  • The school gate opens at 8.35am. All children in year 1 upwards need to be dropped off outside their classrooms.
  • School starts at 8.45am. It is really important that the children are here on time so they can get organised for the school day - our Education and Inclusion Officer monitors lateness regularly.
  • We have a breakfast club held every morning from 8am. Children must be signed in by a parent every morning. Breakfast club costs £2 per session which includes a bowl of cereal or a slice of toast. Money may be paid in advance or on the day.
  • Support our ‘park and walk’ scheme by parking in the Wheatsheaf car park at the start and end of each day. Car park badges are available from the office.
  • We are always really busy in the morning but Mrs Gilbert, Mrs Stubbs, Miss Larner and Mrs Mattick will be in the office to assist you with any queries you may have or you can see us after school.
  • Dinner money should be brought to school in a named envelope. (£2.05 per day, £10.25 per week). There is always the weekly menu on the school newsletter.
  • We offer toast and juice for children at break-time. See the school cook on a Monday morning if you would like your child to have just toast, crumpet or teacake or a snack and juice/milk through the week. Please remind your child they are having the snack so that they remember to line up outside to get it before going out to play.
  • We are a healthy school, therefore we encourage children to drink water throughout the day. It would help us if your child could bring a water bottle to school filled with water ready for the day and take them home at the end of each day to wash. (Sports bottle lids are preferred, please). Also encourage your child to eat a healthy nutritious lunch!
  • We are a NUT FREE school so please do not send in any items containing nuts as we have children and staff who are allergic to nuts.
  • Discourage your child from bringing toys to school unless we specifically ask for them.  If they are asked to bring anything in, it is their responsibility to take care of it and to ensure it is not broken or lost.
  • To encourage and reward positive behaviour we have a Key Points reward system. Your child will be able to earn key points throughout the week for things like: positive behaviour, contributing to lessons, attendance and homework. They will be able to spend their key points in the school shop or save them up for a larger prize. 
  • Helpers are usually welcome for hearing readers, theme days or class trips but at present visitors are not allowed on site. Please just let us know if you are available to help when things get back to normal!
