Contacting the School
As previously mentioned parents will not be allowed on site for the time being. Therefore to contact the school please use the school email address or phone number. A member of staff will endeavour to reply as soon as possible.
Attendance and Holidays
From the beginning of the autumn term the usual rules on school attendance will apply. Considering how much schooling the children have already missed we are asking that you do not make requests for absence to enable us to make the most of being back at school. We understand that missing holidays this year has been very disappointing for us all, but additional time off will only be permitted for exceptional circumstances.
