Data Collection Sheets
These sheets are being sent out for annual updates. Please  check the information carefully and send back to the school office as soon as possible.  We MUST be able to communicate with  parents and carers in an emergency so each family needs TWO contact numbers please.

Lateness
Please remember that school starts at 8.55am and all activities and lessons start promptly. If children are late they may miss a key part of the start of a lesson.

Secondary School Applications - Information for Year 6 Parents & Carers
The portal for applying for secondary school places is now open.  We have been informed that school admissions will NOT be contacting families individually by post. If you do not apply by 31st October, your child will not be allocated a place to start in September 2018. If you have any queries, you should contact Northumberland County Council, School Admissions department on 01670 623563.

Car Park
Unfortunately we are still waiting for the barrier access to be fixed so this is to remind all parents that the school car park is not to be used to drop off or collect children, including walking through the car park. The car park is used for deliveries during the day as well as visitors coming and going.

Clubs
From Monday 25th September all after school clubs will be dismissed from a Year 1 or Year 2 classroom door. To collect your child please go around to that area and signs will be displayed for each club.
