Thank you to those who completed the parent survey. Common themes were communication (both positive and improvement suggestions) and extending school meals to years 3-6. 

Hot Meals

In addition to the existing provision of school meals for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 as part of the Government's scheme for free school meals for this age group, the school is considering making available hot school meals for children in Years 3-6 from September 2019 for parents to buy. To understand level of demand, please follow this link and complete the survey before Friday 29th March

We always try to get information to you as soon as possible and due to the intended audience and/or the nature of content it can necessitate communicating in different ways.

We have had a case of scarlet fever in school. 

Scarlet fever is a common childhood bacterial infection. Symptoms include sore throat, headache, fever, nausea and vomiting.

After 12 to 48 hours the characteristic red, pinhead rash develops, typically first appearing on the chest and stomach, then rapidly spreading to other parts of the body, and giving the skin a sandpaper-like texture. Patients typically have flushed cheeks and pallor around the mouth. This may be accompanied by a ‘strawberry tongue’ whereby the tongue becomes pale with red spots.

If you suspect your child of having scarlet fever contact your GP for a consultation. If your child has contracted scarlet fever and is provided with appropriate antibiotic treatment, please follow your GP’s recommendation for how long your child be away from a school setting.
