We are profoundly grateful to every one of our parents who choose to give their children the opportunities to succeed.

We are really pleased that the lessons and tutoring that is being provided is well balanced and set at the correct level for our son’s remote learning. We very much appreciate all the efforts that the teachers are making during these challenging times. Thank you.


I really enjoy my ‘cultural capital’ lessons.  I get to do lots of things that I don’t normally do.  This term I am in a drama production of Aladdin.

Year 4 pupil

Our oldest daughter has really enjoyed the empowerment brought about by your changes to the school curriculum. Being able to take some ownership of what and when she learns has, we think, been a valuable experience for her.


Pupils enjoy making a positive contribution to their school and community. They do so through the school’s cultural capital programme and pupil leadership opportunities. Pupils are considerate of others and develop strategies to sustain friendships. They say that adults care for them.

Thank you all for everything you do.  I absolutely know that you all care about the children you teach, and I am hugely grateful that my child is in your care.


Reception Busy Bees’ Cafe

It was lovely seeing inside the classroom. My child loved showing me the reading corner and building area. I will be printing the letters and numbers for a reading/learning area at home, which I think is great!


 Year 1 Busy Bees’ Cafe

It was great to see the class space and how the children interact with each other and the teachers. I will use the bookmark and questions during our reading at home. School is more fun than I remember!



Year 2 Busy Bees’ Cafe

It was great to see where and what the children are learning. It seems to be a really positive and happy place to learn.


 Year 3 Busy Bees’ Cafe

It was really lovely to see the children in their school environment, especially their responses to the contextual questions. It’s something I used to do but have fallen out of the habit – I should begin again!


 Year 4 Busy Bees’ Cafe

I liked the idea of using books to help with emotions – the theme of not being afraid of failure or to try.


Year 5 Busy Bees’ Cafe

It was great to get an insight into how the children learn. Busy Bees is a lovely idea! I will endeavour to ask more questions during reading time at home – making sure that tricky words are understood and that the context is recognised.



Year 6 Busy Bees’ Cafe

It was lovely to see and hear the children enjoying a book with pictures, not just lots of chapters. I will do this too!


Please could you give my thanks to the pupils of year 5 and 6 who prepared my lovely planter that I found this afternoon. What a lovely surprise! Unexpected acts of kindness can have such unexpected, long term results sometimes. It certainly made my day brighter.

Year 4 maths workshop

It was really helpful to understand how the children learn division and the vocabulary used.


Year 3 maths workshop

It was useful to see how my child solves calculations. This will help me support them with their homework.
