After-school Clubs
From Monday, 25th April, we will be making a small charge for After-school Clubs to ensure they are sustainable and encourage commitment. The monies collected will be used to purchase resources for the clubs and to contribute towards travel for events. The charge will be £5.00 per half-term, payable in advance. Payments will be made through the Parent Pay system and further details will be sent out next week to children who currently attend clubs.

Social Media
It has been brought to our attention from several sources that some parents have been making inappropriate comments on social media about school and specific members of staff. Due to the nature of these comments, the relevant authorities have been advised and are dealing with the matter. In the meantime, we would like to remind you that school have no official presence on social media.
