School Drop Off

Our school gates are open between 8:30am and 8:45am. Pedestrian access is via the green gates to the rear playground. Cars can use the drop off facility in the car park. The drop off should be entered from the Bridge Street end and exited from the Church Lane end.

Lunches are staggered and take place in the dining hall.  Packed Lunches are available for all pupils in Reception to Year 6.  


Collective Worship

Worship takes place daily and is usually in the hall. Once a month we join the local community for worship at St Nicholas' Church. This is lead by the children and parents of the class who are leading the worship will be invited to attend.  Worship is a chance for the whole school to reflect and focus on the following: school values, vision, rules and expectations; topical events happening in the world today including festivals; singing and celebration.
