Mollie's Story

Meet Mollie, aged 7, a Key Stage 2 pupil from our school who has really struggled with literacy for a couple of years, resulting in a lack of all-round confidence and anxiety about going to school.

Mollie's story shows how LEGO® Education StoryStarter helped to make a real difference both to her literacy learning and her enjoyment of school. We're proud of Mollie and her fantastic story.

Dear Parents and Carers

The Parent Forum meetings will be resuming in the summer term and I look forward to meeting more parents at the Forum. The first one will be on Tuesday 25th April at 2.30 pm. Parents are welcome to ask questions and make suggestions about school life and, as a starting point, I would like to discuss home school communications e.g. Marvellous Me, newsletter, Parent Mail and the website etc. If parents are unable to attend but have questions they would like to raise then please email the office by lunchtime on 25th ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ). If you are planning to attend please let the office know so we can judge how many people are coming and plan accordingly. Our chair of governors, Glenys Mason, will also be attending.

Mrs E Wombwell




As of the beginning of the Summer term, the office will no longer take cash or cheques for payments for dinners or school trips. For those who have not set up their Tucasi accounts and require help, assistance will be available at the school office. If you are not able to access your account from home, you will be able to use an iPad at the school office to make payments.
