Content will be added over the next few months so come back and visit us.

Meet the teacher, stay and play

On Monday 26th June, our new children are invited to meet their teacher and new friends during an hour play and stay session in their classroom. 9.30am to 10.30am

As this is an opportunity to meet new classmates, we are unable to offer other dates or replicate the experience.

Please meet at the main school gates just before 9.30am. If your child is at our nursery that morning, children will be escorted down to the reception classroom and returned to the nursery after meeting their teacher and new friends. 

School Uniform

In EYFS (Reception) we ask that boys and girls wear grey joggers/leggings/trousers as their curriculum is practical and they spend a great deal of time outdoors. We advise parents to send their children in joggers/leggings/trousers until at least Spring half term (and as long as the weather dictates) 

The school uniform policy can be viewed on the link below.

Reception Intake Meeting

We would like to invite you to a short welcome meeting on Thursday 11th May 2023 at 5pm. This meeting is for parent/s to attend without children.


At this meeting you will be given more information about the school. There will be the opportunity to meet your class teacher and be shown the school including classrooms. You will also be given an admission pack with forms that need to be completed and returned to school. We will also need to see the following documentation

  • Original copy of your child’s birth certificate (we are unable to accept copies)
  • Proof of your child’s address (medical/hospital  letter, child benefit letter, child bank /saving account, immunisation letter, red book )
  • 2 x Proof of parents address (recent utility bill, driving licence, bank statement [within the last 3 months], Council Tax letter)

Where there is reasonable doubt of the validity of a home address, the school reserves the right to undertake additional checks.

Failure to provide all documentation requested will prevent admission

to the school until provided.


PE Kit

Children will come into school wearing PE kit on their PE days. PE days will be given out on the first week back.


Pencil Cases

Please do not provide your child with a pencil case as they will not be able to use it. The school will provide all of the pencils, colouring pens/crayons etc that your child will need.
