Latest Information

Masks / face coverings

In light of the Prime Minister’s address last night, and the tighter restrictions being imposed, I feel that it would now be prudent to respectfully ask for your support in wearing masks or face coverings/shields at drop off and collection times.

I do understand that the risk of transmission is lower whilst outside, however with all the best will in the world it is very noticeable that some are finding socially distancing very difficult. The 2 meter distancing is not being adhered to by some and the ‘rule of 6’ has been broken frequently.

I therefore recommend that adults please wear masks or face coverings/shields when waiting outside of school.

I am fully aware that I cannot enforce this, I can only advise and recommend; but for the safety of everyone I hope I can rely on your compliance. (Please do be mindful of the minority who may not be able to wear masks for medical reasons, who will undoubtedly have an exempt lanyard or badge.)  
Thank you
Kind regards

Contacting the school by telephone.


Good morning,

For reporting a pupil absence ( Mrs Stacey) please select option 2.

Thanks for your co-operation


Polite Notice.

Please remember that the only cars allowed on site are those with parking permits! This is for Health and Safety as well as Safeguarding reasons.

Permits are provided to all members of staff on site as well as disabled badge holders.

Please do not try to bring your car onto site without a permit!

Parents are able to use the Asda car park with Park and Stride (applications are on our Mayflower website - under the 'parents' tab.)

There have been occasions recently when parents are following staff cars through the barrier. We would politely request that you refrain from doing so.


Some members of staff park their cars in designated spaces near the main school entrance.

Could we politely request that adults do not lean on these cars, walk between them or allow any children to go around or between them. It is very easy for accidental damage to take place and this is obviously something we want to avoid.
