Unfortunately we've had to make the decision to close school tomorrow due to the dangerous conditions everyone would face in getting in to school, especially in light of the deteriorating weather that is forecast for tonight.  As you know, the safety of our childen is always our priority.

Hopefully you've already managed to hear the news via the ParentMail we sent, or from our Twitter feed.

School will be open again on Monday 5th March.

(We've added possible actions in blue)

  • Went through to secondary school! We loved this!!
  • Had a pre-school! And this!!
  • Sent more work home so parents can support their daily learning. See below.
  • Passed on information if a child has found something difficult on a particular day so parents can aid their learning at home. Teachers can choose to set homework when necessary but listening to your views, if you visit the class pages on the website, we're adding more specific details about the units being covered in English and Maths so you can, if you choose, look to support the children in these areas.
  • More of a range of activities at breakfast club.  
  • Offered Coding Games...
  • Had 'big books' in the library (especially about dinosaurs).
  • More indoor play activities.
  • Made the main school's playground more adventurous like the Victorian block. We've submitted a bid to a charity for apparatus - watch this space!
