Useful Information



Homework is set on a Monday and should be completed by the following Monday. Children will have Mathletics, Study Ladder and activities to complete as well as times table practise, spelling practise and they should also read every day for a minimum of 20 minutes. They should record their reading in their diaries at least 3 times a week. Please note spellings are tested on Fridays and new spellings sent out on Fridays.  



On PE days children should come to school in their outdoor PE kit (black shorts/ joggers, white t-shirt, black hoodie and black trainers). Hair longer than shoulder length should be tied back and jewellery removed. PE days are as follows:

SM10 - Monday and Friday SM11 - Tuesday and Thursday

SM12 - Tuesday and Friday



Pupils should come to school every day with all the equipment they need. They will need the following: A small named pencil case, HB pencils, clear shatterproof 30cm ruler, blue handwriting pens (not biro), rubber and sharpener. Children can also bring in glue sticks, gel pens, pencil crayons, highlighters and felt tips if they like but these are not essential.


Mobile Phones

Children are not permitted to have a mobile phone at school. If we see a child with their mobile phone, an adult will ask the child to ensure the phone is off, put in an envelope and it will be stored in a safe in the classroom which will be returned at the end of the school day. Phones are stored at the child and parents’ own risk and school cannot accept and responsibility for damage or loss.


Nut Free School

Please remember that we are a NUT FREE school. Pupils are allowed to bring in snacks of fruit, vegetables, plain bread sticks or cheese to eat at morning break. Thank you for your support with this.

Charter created by and for Year 6

At the start of the school year, Year 6 children worked collaboratively to investigate problems we face on the playground and in class and to come up with resolutions that we can all take (children and adults) to make sure that 'our fun is fun for everyone'. This included looking at the charter they completed in Year 5 and the charter previous Year 6 children created. Class teachers were blown away with the responses that children had! We put all ideas together to create a charter or expectations that we all verbally agreed to follow. You can find this here:

A super example of remote learning in History
