Diary Dates


Please visit our the Calendar page of this website for diary dates.




Children in Rowan Class (Year 4) and Hawthorn Class (Year 5) will swim every Wednesday until the May Term holiday.


Children should bring a swim kit, including swim hat and £2.00 voluntary contribution to school each Tuesday. It is the Leisure Centre policy that all children must wear swim hats. Swim hats can be purchased from the school office, price £1.00.


Requests for Absence During Term Time


The Government Regulations changed in September 2013 which meant that educational establishments could no longer authorise absence for holidays. However, you can request an absence for exceptional circumstances.

If you do need to make a request to take your child out of school during term time for exceptional circumstances, please visit the school office and collect the relevant form.

Please note: Tall Oaks Academy Trust retains powers to fine parents who take their child out of school without permission in conjunction with the Local Authority. Annual family holidays are NOT considered exceptional circumstances.

Snow and Ice


When adverse weather conditions are being experienced, that is when ice and snow are on the ground, all children and adults who come on to the school site are requested to only use the treated footways.

If you do not bring your child to school, please could you make your child aware of this instruction.

Your continued support in keeping our school site safe is very much appreciated.
