'Learning Together, Being Our Best'

Welcome to our school website. We are a friendly, ambitious and inclusive school where children always come first. We hope you find all the information you require. Please contact the school office if you need further information or guidance.




Children need to attend regularly to take full advantage of the educational opportunities available to them. Research shows that attendance and punctuality are important factors in school success.


Going to school every day is the single most important part of your child’s education. Pupils learn new things at school every day and missing school puts them behind.


Did you know that there are 190 school days in each year and 175 non-school days?


Parents – you can support regular school attendance by:


  • Making sure your child leaves for school early enough to arrive at school on time
  • Supporting and encouraging your child by attending parent’s evenings and other events
  • Contacting the school to discuss any concerns regarding your child’s attendance
  • Working in partnership with the school to resolve any issues that are impacting on your child’s attendance
  • Making any medical appointments outside of school hours whenever possible
  • Not taking your child out of school for holidays in term time or for other unnecessary reasons
