Please find below some of the comments from recent feedback on our questionnaire for parents. 

"Amazing teachers who have the time for all the children and parents. Lessons and parent info are well thought out"

"The teachers are very hands on with each child and are easy to talk to"

"My child has been here for the past year and we can say that the attitude towards the kids is wonderful! He loves to come to school and that tells us everything"

"My children have been to a lot of different schools and can honestly say this school has been the best, it ticks every box"

"Very friendly and supportive learning environment that encourages and supports strong links with home"

"I would like to thank all reception staff for supporting and teaching my child. I am proud of how she has grown in such a short amount of time"


Have a look at our webpage and if you have any questions we are always there to help!


Wish Tree

Inside the reception classroom we have a 'Wish Tree' where the children can tell us what they would like to learn about. You will notice that leaves are beginning to appear on the tree.


You will have also recieved some orange and yellow leaves so that you can tell us what you 'wish' for your children to learn during their first year at school. These leaves are now being added to the tree and we hope that your children will achieve what you have 'wished' for them by the end of the year


Thank you for supporting us by helping your child to fill a shoe box with their special things. They really enjoyed sharing their things with us. We noticed that many of the children had their favourite book in their shoe box. So we have decided that ‘Books’ will be our first topic. We ‘brainstormed’ the topic of ‘Books’ with the children. Please have a look at our ‘brainstorming’ as it is stuck on the window, in the class room.


  • We will be looking at the children’s favourite books and books by ‘Well Known Authors’.
  • We will be learning about different types of books e.g. story books, information books, alphabet books, rhyme books, counting books etc.
  • We will be learning about the different elements of a story e.g. characters, setting (where the story takes place), events of the story etc.
  • We will look at the front cover and try to predict the content of a story – title, picture, author, illustrator etc.
  • We will retell stories using props from ‘story sacks’.
  • We will make a class book about school.
  • We will make our own individual ‘zig-zag’ books about ‘Our Family’.
  • We are hoping to go on a trip to the library
