School Fund

This year, we plan to offer a number of exciting enrichment activities to all children, and we need your help to be able to do so.


We are asking that all parents please try to contribute. This is a one-off payment of £25.

If you are unable to afford this, please do try to make a smaller contribution. This includes pupils eligible for Pupil Premium.


If every parent contributes something, it will make such a difference to what we can offer!

Your contribution is entirely voluntary, but you will understand the difference that it makes.


Please login to your Parent Portal, sign your child up to the Voluntary contribution TRIP and make your contribution payment on Arbor.


Please note that day trips and residentials will be paid for separately, not from the school fund,  and you will be notified of these as and when they occur.


Thank you for your continued support.

Autumn 1 French:

This half – term in French, children will learn numbers 0 - 20 as well as simple classroom instructions. They will practise presenting a role-play in French with their partners asking each other and answering questions on their name, age and feelings.

Drop off and Pick Up Safety


We like to have a good relationship with our local residents so please remember, if possible, walk to school. 


If you are driving in the local area, please do so considerately and under no circumstances block residents' driveway for any length of time. You must not stop or let children out of the car on the zigzag lines outside the school gate. 


Also, a reminder that the use of e-scooters is both dangerous and illegal.

Home Time Arrangements Year 3


Dear Parents/Carers,

Thank you for your understanding whilst we tweak the pickup arrangements to ensure that both you and your children are safe.


Please queue to the right of the pedestrian gate and when a member of staff lets you in, make your way to the playground to collect your child. Please exit through the same gate.


Please ensure that you stick to the time of 3.00.


Thank you for your continued support

Lockdown Procedures.


As you will know all schools need to be prepared for a situation where they need to lockdown the school – keeping children and staff inside for their own safety.  


To ensure we are prepared for this we have worked hard to put in place very clear procedures for a lockdown situation using the advice from the Metropolitan Police and other emergency agencies. We have a lockdown policy and procedures for our school, but these are not available on our website or shared beyond staff in the school for obvious security reasons. 


We conduct termly lockdown drills with the children and staff to make sure the procedures work. We will ensure that the children understand that, like in the event of a fire alarm – which means the building is not safe – where everybody stays calm and leaves sensibly, a lockdown simply means that something outside is not safe – therefore we stay inside the building and sit quietly and calmly. In an age-appropriate way we will make sure that they are aware of how to respond in the event of an emergency situation.  

Year 3 Welcome Letter Autumn 1

Indoor Shoes


Currently, indoor shoes are optional. If the weather is bad and you wish your child to come to school in boots or wellies, please ensure that they have their school shoes to change into.


Children will still need to have plimsolls and trainers in their PE kits.


Thank you



We are all really looking forward to seeing the children on Thursday 2nd September. Your children’s teachers have planned wonderful activities to welcome the children into their new classes and will be spending time getting to know your child and helping them feel confident as they begin the new year.


Morning drop-off: Please drop off your child at the Avenue Road gate. The gates will be open 8:10am – 8:30am. The children will then make their way to the Jubilee playground where they will proceed to their new classrooms.


If you also have a child in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, please drop and collect your children off via the Dorset Road gate and follow the guidance on your younger child’s pick-up times and locations. Please note, only children with siblings in Nursery to Year 2 should use the Dorset Road gate.



Please remember that children must be in the correct school uniform which is labelled (see our school website for full details of the uniform policy). Although resources will be provided in school, if your child wishes to bring their own pencil cases then they can but please ensure that this, and its contents, is fully labelled.


Could you also ensure that your child’s P.E kit is in school from the start of term and that each item is name labelled.  The children will require their P.E. kit during the first week of school and this should include trainers for outdoor use. Smart watches are not permitted in school, due to safeguarding reasons.


The children will also require a labelled swimming kit as they will start swimming the week beginning 6th September.  


We look forward to working with you and your child.
