Whilst we do allow the taking of photographs and videos in school at the moment, it is only under the absolute assurance that these photos do not appear on any social networking sites if they include images of children other than your own, however distant / blurred they maybe.  Thank you.


As a school we have always tried to help you by completing requests free of charge.  If you need us to do this (and they must come via the Headteacher please even if another member of staff has been asked to complete the form) please do give us plenty of time, and please do not ask us to fill in passports if you are considering taking your children out of school in term time.  The staff have been directed not to complete them in this case for obvious reasons!



All of our after school sports clubs are ran by Premier Sport. For course information and booking details, please visit If you need to get hold of Premier Sport after school hours, please contact Mr Hudson on 07595 222428.
