News

The children have settled into their new classes and year groups exceedingly well this week. Our new Reception class children are exploring all corners of the school. The new approach to maths has the children buzzing. This morning Year 2 went back in time dressed as Victorian children. The school looked very different in their classrooms.

Evacuation Day- Friday 29th September

As part of our Health and Safety Major Incident Policy we now have an annual evacuation drill. This will be on Friday 29th September . This means that there will be no after school clubs and no after school care provision.  We will send every parent a text when the drill starts. All parents will receive a text message indicating the start of the evacuation drill and to collect their child. The children must be collected from Holy Trinity church.  The text will be sent between 2.00pm – 2.30pm. As part of the process every child has to be signed out to a responsible adult/parent. This year the school admin staff have organised the signing out procedures alphabetically so that parents need only go to one sign out station. Please ensure that your contact details are up to date. As in previous years we aim to make this efficient and non-threatening to the children. Most children are familiar with Holy Trinity and they watch a video until collected. The children view this as a big adventure which is good I the event that this is a real procedure. If you have any questions relating to the Evacuation Day please feel free to contact me.
