Messages for Class

If you need to speak to your child’s class teacher please ring before 8.30am or after 3.30pm, after this time any non-urgent messages will be passed on to Class teacher by Admin. You can contact via Eschools your child’s class teacher at any time during the day, but they will not be able to reply until the end of the school day.


If your child is going to be absent could you please ring Transport Services Solution on 0300 123 5012 and inform them as early as possible. To ensure security for letters and correspondence please note that they should be given to the driver/escort on the bus/taxi, the driver/escort will put them in a plastic wallet and pass them to our Transport Co-Ordinator who will pass them onto the Admin Team. Likewise, if school needs to send letters to parent they will be given to driver/escort to give to parents.

Any Medication that is sent into school will be recorded “in” and “out” of school by the Transport Co-Ordinator. Please note that medication that is not required daily and pre-arranged, could you please notify the School Nurse, as medication such as Antibiotics need to be kept in the fridge. Please do not put any medication into your child’s school bag, give it directly to the driver/escort.
