Contacting School


Parents meetings are held once a term to discuss individual children’s progress. Teachers’ are available at the front door at the start and end of the school day to answer any quick queries. At any other time please feel free to contact the school office to make an appointment to talk to a member of staff.


Family Learning


Family Learning takes place every Friday afternoon 1.10 - 3.10pm. It is an opportunity to spend time working together with your child in school. A free creche is available for pre-school children. Places are limited so please contact the school office if you are interested in joining the group.




We run fundraising activities throughout the year (Christmas and Summer fayres, textile collections, tea & toast and Fireworks night). We would love for you to get involved in planning, supporting and providing fresh ideas!  If you would like to be involved please speak to Mrs Crathorne.




Children are encouraged to read their reading book with an adult at home every day if possible.  All children will also have a homework book and have 1 activity to do at home each week. If parents have any questions about the homework please ask any member of staff in your child’s class - they will be only too happy to help.


Share your views through Parent View


Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.

When our school is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire. Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details.

Please register with an email address and a password at Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.

Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.

If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask at reception.
