Easter Holidays

We continue to be open for the Easter holidays for parents of children who are critical workers or for vulnerable children. Details about this provision were written in the letter dated 1st April 2020, and places allocated.

Please continue to contact the school via the admin email address if you have any issues.

Beware of Scam Emails

We have been informed that some parents have received an email stating the following: ‘As schools will be closing, if you’re entitled to free school meals, please send your bank details and we’ll make sure you’re supported’.

We can confirm that this is a scam email and is not official. We urge parents that if you receive any emails like this, please do not respond, and delete it immediately.
