School Information

We are a small urban Primary School, with 95 children currently on roll (September 2023).  The capacity of the school is 105 and so we will always be a small school.

There are known educational benefits to attending a small school; we pride ourselves in the way all of our children are known as individuals.  Visitors often comment that the school has a family feel to it; a view shared by many of our children and parents. 

Because we are a primary school our children are with us from when they start school in Foundation 2 (Reception) until they move on to secondary school at the end of Year 6.

The children are split into four classes:

Class 1: F2 (Reception)

Class 2: Years 1 & 2

Class 3: Years 3 & 4

Class 4: Years 5 & 6

The School Day

The bell is rung at 08:55 each morning.  This begins the school day. 

The day ends at 15:30. Children are in school for 32.5 hours each week.

A typical school day looks like this:

Holidays During Term Time

We are only able to authorise children’s absence for the most exceptional of reasons.  A holiday is not a valid excuse for children missing school.  School policy is to monitor attendance closely and take legal action where necessary.
