PE Kits

PE will be on a Thursday morning. Please send PE kits into school as soon as possible and they can be left in school until half term. Please make sure all PE kit items are named and that the children have suitable outdoor and indoor clothing. Trainers are advisable, in addition to pumps.


Swimming lessons have been postponed until further notice. Your child will not be required to bring a swimming kit into school for the time being.  You will be notified as and when this changes.

Pupil Planners

Planners are required in school every day.  Reading aloud at home should be done at least 3 times per week, even if you only have time to read a few pages. Please ensure that you make a note in your child’s planner to let us know how your child is reading. Children can write in their own planners in KS2 as long as a parent confirms this reading at least once per week. In the planner there are several sections that must be read and completed by parents/carers. It is important that that you complete these sections as soon as possible and encourage your child to look at the sections they can complete.


Your child will be given homework on a Friday, to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.  Your child will receive maths and English based homework, where appropriate, in addition to learning spellings and times tables every week.

Children will be expected to complete 2 lessons of Reading Plus each weekend and this will be monitored by the class teacher.

Snack: Children can purchase a healthy snack every day, it costs 60p for two items and it would be really helpful if your child could bring the correct change.

Lunch: Lunch will cost £2.40 per day and should be paid for online via parent pay, the menu is published on the website.

Writing: We teach contextual grammar as much as possible to ensure that grammar knowledge is retained and become sticky. We also use this method to significantly enhance outcomes in extended writing with grammar knowledge being applied more proficiently. Please see our Whole School Grammar Writing Journey to see the writing opportunities that will be covered.
