We are a friendly and inclusive school, committed to ensuring our children are happy, healthy and successful. We have a close partnership with Woodside Primary School as our Headteacher leads both schools.
Through our curriculum and work on values, we encourage positive social skills, self-respect and a caring attitude towards each other and the wider community.
We offer a breakfast club, an exciting number of extra-curricular activities including Forest School, sports and music programmes to help develop all aspects of a child’s abilities.
Our children feel safe, supported and enjoy their learning. We are proud of their successes, which are created through strong partnerships between home and school. Together we work to create a school community in which our children can thrive.
Thank you for visiting!

15.06.20 It is lovely to see some more children back in school today. Please note that we are now at capacity in the reception and year one classes due to the size of rooms and staffing. Any extra reception and year ones who would like to come from the week beginning 22nd June will be in a new bubble in the hall with Early Years staff under the direction of their class teacher.
Regarding care provision for Y2 to Y6, it is essential that school has 24 hours of notice so please make sure that you book using the email@example.com email and please wait for confirmation of your booking. This is so that staff know exactly who to expect as we want all children to feel happy, welcome and secure when they arrive and not in position where staff are finding extra tables and resources at the last minute.
We are monitoring the risk assessments daily and decisions about having more children depend on numbers of staff, rooms and children.
Following the government’s announcement that not all year groups will be returning, we may be able to offer some part time days to extra year groups (ie Y2, 3, 4, and 5) on a rota basis during the last few weeks of term if there is a desire for this. If you think you would like your child to return before the end of term please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday so that we can see what could be feasible. We will continue to prioritise spaces for key workers.
Thank you so much for your support at this time. Thank you for your understanding that additional placements are dependent on a lot of factors.
Please see below Return to School Information Booklet for Parents.
