Dogs on Site

Dogs on Site

Please be aware that dogs are NOT allowed anywhere on site.
Please do not bring dogs onto the playground or tie them up at perimeter fences.
Remember apart from the obvious problems with dog excrement being trodden in by small children, many children find dogs extremely scary (even though you may know your dog is friendly).
We have also had reported instances where dogs have been aggressive towards each other and owners and children have been very alarmed and distressed.
The only exception to this will be registered assistance dogs.
Please let the office know if you own an assistance dog and need to bring it into school.

Attendance Newsletter

Please see below our new Attendance Newsletter:

It is vital your child attends school every day to maximise their learning.
There is direct evidence that high attenders achieve proportionally higher results than the children with low attendance or who are continually late. Please ensure your child is in school every day unless they are really unwell.
