Teaching School Status

Designated Teaching School

As a designated ‘Teaching School’ we receive funding from the National College to provide training and support to other local schools. We are hosting a range of courses this term covering the following areas: Assessment, Literacy, Computing, ADHD, the role of school leaders and reasoning in mathematics. If you are interested in finding out more about this support – please visit our Teaching School website:


Meet the Teacher Presentations

Hopefully you’ve found these meetings useful. The presentations for our Early Years setting will take place next Monday (Upper EYs - Reception) and next Wednesday (Lower EYs – Nursery) from 3pm. For further information about the routines and curriculum covered in each year group, please visit the ‘Class’ pages on our school website:

If you still have any questions, please feel free to speak with your child’s class teacher after school.


Parents’ Evenings

A letter was sent home this week, inviting you to request a convenient appointment for our next Parents’ Evenings on Tuesday 27th and Thursday 29th September. This will be an opportunity to discuss your child’s targets and support for this term. If you would like to attend, please return the reply slip as soon as possible.


Years 1 and 6 Mass

Next Tuesday 20th September, Years 1 and 6 will walk to Church to participate in the 9.30am Mass. If you are able to accompany your child’s class to and from Church – please let your child’s class teacher know as soon as possible (we will be leaving school just after 9am). Thank you in advance.


Pupil Absence

If your child is sick for any reason, we ask that you inform the school office before 8.40am. Pupil absence can be reported via email or by ringing the school office.
