On a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday when Mrs Craven is the teacher, the class will be supported by Miss Robers and on a Thursday and Friday when Miss Roberts is teaching, the class will be supported by Mrs Hughes.

Our School Golden Rules
- Be respectful
- Be ready
- Be safe
The cost of snack remains the same at £1 per week. This gets your child toast everyday of the week at break time. If your child prefers to bring snack from home this has to be a healthy option such as fruit.
PE will be on TUESDAY afternoon from now on, however, we now ask that children come to school wearing their PE kit on that day. This MUST be a school kit.
Your child's PE kit should include: -
- Blue T-shirt (Can be purchased form the school office)
- Black shorts or plain black/dark jogging bottoms in winter
- Trainers (for outside PE)
- Black pumps (for indoor PE)
- School jumper or Cardigan in the colder month
Just a reminder to all Parents, Homework will go home on a Tuesday and be returned to us completed on the following Monday. It is vital that all children bring in their homework completed as it helps prepare them for Year 6 as well as High School. Please note homework may not go out to children every week.
Children are still expected to be reading a minimum of 4 times a week so that they can achieve their reading certificates. This needs to be logged in their Reading Record which then needs to be brought into school to be checked.
Just a reminder to our parents, children should wear their full school uniform daily unless stated otherwise. School Uniform should include: -
- School Jumper or Cardigan
- White Shirt/polo shirt
- Tie (colour based on which house your child is in)
- Black/Grey Trousers or skirt
- School Dress
- ALL Black Shoes
