Accessing Provision

Following careful consideration of the responses to the questionnaire regarding accessing provision for year groups 2, 3 4 and 5, we have now confirmed our offer to those who expressed an interest. We are now at capacity and, with the exception of the children of critical workers, those in Reception and those in Year 6, we are not able to accept children who do not already have a place in existing bubbles in our school provision.

 We are still committed to supporting our whole school community, both those physically in school and those who are not. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with your child’s class teacher on the class emails, or via the office on if there is anything you need, or to feedback on your child’s learning and wellbeing.

You can provide feedback to your child’s teacher via a generic email address. These are:
