Headteacher's Update

The Summer Term brings a number of statutory assessments that our pupils have to undergo. Year 6 will be sitting their SATS the week of 13th May and further information can be found on our website in our FAQs section.

Year 4 pupils will be undergoing their Multiplication Check between Monday 3rd June and Friday 14th June - further information can be found here.

Lastly, Year 1 pupils will go through their Phonics Screening Check the week commencing Monday 10th June and further information and resources can be found here.

Compulsory testing in Year 2 has now been ended by the government. Teachers will use test style questions in class to inform accurate teacher assessment, which you will be informed about via the annual school report.

For all of our parents/carers with children in Years 1, 4 and 6, if you are not sure how best to support your child or if there are specific sounds, times tables, areas of maths/spelling, punctuation and grammar or reading that you would like more information on, please speak with your child’s teacher. They are routinely collecting non-formal assessment information and are more than happy to share this with you so that we can work together in best supporting your child for the next stage of their school journey.

Information on how you can support pupils at home with stress related to SATS can be downloaded here:

Internet Safety Parent Workshop

Our E-Safety workshop will take place very shortly on 30th April at 3.45 to 4.45pm at the Junior school. Currently attendance is looking a little low and I wanted to again flag to parents that this is a really useful opportunity to learn about the role you can plan in keeping your children safe when they are accessing the internet at home. It will be run by a specialist from HARRAP ICT.

Book here:


A reminder to all parents to please ensure that no children use the Gym equipment or trim trail before or after school (i.e. during drop-off and pick up). Unfortunately our insurance does not cover accidents.

Please don't send food containing nuts, sesame or kiwi fruit to school due to children with allergies on site.

Our last INSET day for this year will take place on Friday 14th June. Next year's INSET dates will be published before half term.
