If you think you might qualify, please visit If your child is currently in Year 2, free school meals will no longer be available to them from September.

Open Afternoon Wednesday 19th July 2.30pm- 3.10pm
We welcome you on the above date to visit the school. You can collect your child/ren, visit their next class, tour the school and look at their work and see the teachers. The children need to be back to their own class by 3.10pm for end of day routines.

Thought for the week
Every week, we have a special focus for thinking and prayer. This week, we were thinking about change, and the fresh challenges this can bring.
"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1)

Kind regards
