  • Individual Pupil Information Pack – you should now have returned your child’s completed forms to school. If you haven’t, please do so ASAP.  It is very important that we have up to date emergency contact details.
  • Musical instrument tuition fees are due now please.



For those who don’t know, I am the Designated Safeguarding Lead for school and Mrs. McMahon is the deputy lead. You can speak to any member of staff if you have any concerns, but if there is something more serious, we are the people to talk to. We deal with everything in school and coordinate the support around the family. If you require any more information please contact me at school.
