Below are links to online tutorials that will guide you through how to help your child succeed

and develop in Literacy.


Car Parking-Dogs-Smoking.  


Parents/carers are asked not to use the car park at the beginning and the end of the school day.

The car park is locked at the beginning and end of the day to prevent unauthorised parking.


Dog owners are requested not to allow or bring their animals on to our premises for any reason.


Smoking is not allowed on the school site.  



The school follows the Literacy and Mathematics National Curriculum across all year groups and assesses at the end of Early Years, Year 1 for Phonics, and Years 2 and 6 for Reading Writing and Mathematics.


For History, Geography and Science we are following the topics and learning set out in the Knowledge Curriculum. The specific areas are outlined for parents in the curriculum overviews which are on this page on the website.  


The Core Knowledge lessons intend to put knowledge back into primary education, ensuring that our pupils leave primary school with solid foundations for future learning.


In Key Stage 2 the class teachers now teach either mathematics for both classes – or writing for both classes.  Every class is taught reading by their class teacher.


This subject specific focus for these two subjects ensures high quality outcomes with clear focus on the subject and allows planning and teaching support by the leadership of the school.

Please make sure you are aware of your child's activity on the internet.  Online bullying and unsafe sharing of personal details is often not well understood by children of primary school age.


We are teaching online safety in school on an ongoing basis.  If necessary we will help and support parents managing children's internet and social media use, through school policies and the work of the Family Support Worker.  Please contact Mrs Liz Polson if you would like to discuss this at all.
