About Us

Information on our overarching aims for the children and members of our community including Learning Characteristics, Behaviour and what differences being a church school makes.

Teachers are available on the playground at the end of each day, rather than the start of the day when they are settling the children off on their learning adventure. If you have a none urgent communication this can be recorded in your child's jotter but these are only checked once a week in most classes. Alternatively, if you would like to make contact with a member of staff you can do so through the office on the number above or use the Contact Form below the following table of information.

The children will start school on Tuesday 3rd September 2024. For the first two school days we operate a part-time timetable for our starters and we will contact you with details of whether your child is to attend in the morning or the afternoon. On the first full day, Thursday 5th September, we will introduce the children to their Year 6 buddies who will help with the lunchtime process.

This page has information on all our policies, processes and procedures including school attendance, and leave of absence applications.
