If your child cannot attend school on any day, please ensure that the school is informed as soon as possible by ringing the Absence telephone number 01579 386161 or notifying us via the SchoolGateway App.



Along side the weekly newsletter, letters, telephone, our website and Twitter (follow us here) - our main communication, booking, payment system is School Gateway.

This system means that we can share information with parents more quickly via email, text, online and smartphone app. It will also save you - and the school - time and money. 

If you have a smartphone, both you and the school can save money when you download the ‘School Gateway’ app from your app store (Android and iPhone).


Once you’ve downloaded the app, our texts will be delivered to you as instant app messages. Any messages that you send to school using the app will be FREE of charge to you.

It’s quick and easy to do. All you need to activate the app for the first time are your email address and mobile number that school holds on record for you. If you have trouble logging in, please call us on 01579 386160.  

You will also be able to make payments via Instant Bank Transfer, debit or credit card, view lunch balances.

Behaviour Management 

We take a positive approach towards behaviour. All members of staff have high expectations and follow the school’s policy which can be found on our website's policies page



We recognise the diversity of needs within our school and we aim to give each individual child the support they need. We aspire to create a socially inclusive community where all children are accepted for their individuality and unique ability.


Music Lessons

Children are able to learn a variety of instruments, including the violin, woodwind, guitar and drums. Weekly sessions at the school are run by a company called IMS, but the office at school will be able to give you all the information you need. Currently, over 50 children learn instruments.


Collective Worship


Each day the children experience an act of worship held in the hall. This is an opportunity to develop the children’s sense of self, others and spirituality. The basis of this is Christian and takes on a broad knowledge of world faiths, especially festivals and celebrations and the roles and responsibilities of citizens.


Right of withdraw

We expect all children to attend assembly. However, any parent can request permission for their child to be excused from religious worship, and we will make alternative arrangement for the supervision of the child during that part of the assembly. Parents do not have to explain or give reasons for their request. The right of withdrawal complies with the 1994 Education Act, and was restated in the 1988 Education Reform Act.


Complaints Procedure


You are encouraged to discuss any matter of concern with the Headteacher or Teacher as soon as they arise.  In this way we can avoid small problems growing into large ones. We are required to have a formal procedure for complaints about the curriculum and this is set out below.


Arrangement for the handling of complaints about the curriculum:


1) Parents who wish to make a complaint should contact the school and make an appointment to discuss the matter with the Class teacher or the Headteacher.  Other school or County staff may be involved as appropriate.


2) If the complaint cannot be resolved at school level, the parent may register the complaint with the governing body.


3) A sub-committee of governors will usually hear the complaint. The parent has the right to appeal to the Secretary of State.


The Complaints Policy was re-adopted by the school in Autumn 2017.
