We will be holding two meetings for parents as follows:

6.00 - 7.00pm on Wednesday 17 October 2018

These meetings will provide you with lots of information about our school, our values and vision for all our pupils, a chance to look around and view our facilities and have the opportunity to meet with our Headteacher and staff from our Early Years’ classes. We have arranged for two meetings, which are intended for adults only, thereby giving the option for each parent to attend one of the sessions should you have difficulty arranging childcare.

If you would like to attend one of the above meetings could you please contact the school to book a place either via email to or by telephoning the school office on 01904 555495.
