ParentPay – Please ensure that all payments for outstanding items on the ParentPay system are made before the end of the school year so that the year 2023-24 can be closed off. Thank you.


Free School Meals – The application process for Free School Meals and Uniform Grants is now open. If you follow the link, you can check eligibility for applying. Please apply as soon as possible, as they do become inundated with applications close to the end of the summer break resulting in a delay in the process.


Classes for next year – We are in the process of recruiting for September. Children will be informed during the summer holidays who their teacher is for September 2024 and where the class is situated.


Roots Of Empathy– We are on the lookout for two babies to participate in our Roots of Empathy Programme. The programme involves ten baby and mother visits spread throughout the school year. If you have a baby who will be aged between 2 and 4 months old this coming September or if you know of another mother and baby who might be willing to participate please contact the school for further information.


School Show –  Copies of this year’s show are available on USB pen drives from the office. Please check schoolbags for pre-ordered copies.

Accelerated Reading – Congratulations to all children who met their Accelerated Reading targets this year. Please keep reading over the summer holidays.


New School Year – School reopens for all pupils on Monday 2nd September at 9:00 a.m. Primary 1 pupils are welcome to at 9:30 a.m. on that day.


P.E. Kit – Please click HERE to download flyer that provides QR code and details on how to purchase our new P.E. kit for use from September. The kit will hopefully prove beneficial to KS2 pupils and parents although KS1 pupils are also very welcome to purchase any of the different packs available. The kit can be viewed and tried on for size during next week but only by prior appointment. If you are interested please contact the school for times when the school will be open next week (1st -5th July).


All the staff at school would like to express our sincere thanks to all our families for all your support throughout the year. We wish each and everyone of you a safe, happy and healthy summer break.
