Traffic Arrangements in the school
- During the hours of 10am to 1pm, it is NOT POSSIBLE to drive to the front door of the school. The area is being reserved for the pupils to play/cycle during their breaks. If you need to access the school during these hours please park elsewhere and walk into the school.
- Unless you have a parking permit do not park in the area in front of the school, either in the mornings or the afternoons.
- If you wish to use the drop-off facility for your child in the mornings, your child must be ready to exit the car at the left-hand side. If it is not possible for them to exit at that side, you need to park somewhere else to safely help your child from your car.
Chewing gum on school premises
We have noticed an increase in the amount of chewing gum littering the school grounds. Please note that we enforce a very strict policy of no chewing gum on the school campus. We would appreciate it if you could comply with this and encourage your children not to bring chewing gum to the school.
A 2016/17 School calendar which includes a class photo is being sent home with each child today courtesy of the Parents’ Association.

Thank you to everyone who has paid the G.P. Fee. All fees should be paid in full at this stage. I am currently contacting anyone who has not paid this fee to discuss making payments by weekly installments.
