Pupil Premium

As all children in Key Stage 1 are now eligible for free school meals, it is more important than ever that the school knows the number of children for whom pupil premium funding can be claimed for. Parents can check if their child is eligible by visiting and creating an account.

Every parent who checks their eligibility at the website can claim a free copy of the same anti-virus program that we use in school, to protect the computers used at home by pupils.

For more information, please see this letter.

Parents Evening

There are three parents’ evenings in each year, one in each term. The autumn term meeting provides an opportunity for parents and teachers to meet and share information about the children. The spring term meeting is designed for discussing the children’s progress during the first half of the year and the necessary steps for good progress during the second half. During the summer term parents will receive a written report about their child. There will be an opportunity to discuss this at the Parents’ Evening in the summer term. Parents are welcome to come into school at any time throughout the year, by prior appointment with their child’s class teacher to discuss progress or any concerns they may have.

Parents’ Meetings

Each term parents are invited to attend an informal meeting with the Headteacher to ask questions that they may be concerned about and discuss day-to-day issues. 

Parents Information Meetings

At the beginning of each school year, the school hosts parent information meetings. In these meetings, the teachers will explain how they teach the children phonics and mathematics in our school.
