If your family income is below £16,190, additional Government funding may be claimed by the school. Successful applications will be entitled to a hot school meal each day, milk at break-time, a £50 voucher to spend at our uniform suppliers, First4uniforms (only applies to new applications) and financial support with school trip payments. Your child may already be entitled to a hot meal via UIFSM (Universal Infant School Meals) however we strongly encourage you to register your child so that our school receives as much funding as possible.
If you are a parent who is in the regular armed forces, the school can also claim for additional funding. If you fulfil this criteria, please contact Cheryl Marrs, School Business Manager.
Please be reassured that this process is entirely confidential.

Last week, children from Reception to Year 6 took part in our e-safety week. Children learnt about how to use the internet responsibly and how to keep safe. Each class produced a final piece of work about e-safety to show at our end of week assembly. These included information leaflets about how to keep safe from Year 5, posters from Year 4 and PowerPoint presentations about the use of social networking sites from Year 6.
Below is just some of the fantastic work the children produced from Year 4 and Year 6.

We also invited parents and carers to our e-safety coffee morning to learn about resources and strategies to support children at home with e-safety. A copy of the presentation can be found on our safeguarding page, e-safety presentation.
‘Mixed up Materials’ was the theme of the day for some children from each class in years 1-5 on Friday 6th May. Children worked throughout the day on developing their own questioning as scientists. They investigated a range of materials and found out what happened to red cabbage juice when different materials were painted on to it. The children separated a mixture of materials using problem solving and questioning to guide them through their thinking as a team. The day culminated in a Mentos and fizzy drink ‘fireworks’ display where materials that were combined in a surprising way. Much fun was had by all involved and the children all developed their questioning approach in science through the activities.
