Arrangements for SPORTS DAY Tuesday 19th July

By now you should have already received information from your child’s class regarding sports day. Briefly the arrangements are as follows:

Lower school: Parents/carers to arrive at 9.30am for a 9.45am start.
Upper school: Parents/carers arrive at 1.30pm for a 1.45pm start
Specialist Classes and individual children (Cherry, Ash, Willow and Magnolia): As per specific time slots.
Please do not arrive any earlier than 9.15am, or 1.30pm as the children will still be arriving and settling into school, or returning to their classes following lunch break.
Parking as always will be very difficult, we recommend that you try to park off site.
The pool is closed, therefore swimming events will be delayed and held in the autumn term.

Pine Top Class Café” will be open on Wednesday 20th July, raising money for the Variety Children’s Charity. All the children will be invited to visit the café during the day. Please can you send your child in with a small sum of money (we suggest about £1) so that they can buy a drink and some cake.


We have recently upgraded our parentmail system to ParentmailPMX, which seems to have caused a few hic-ups. Please bear with us while we try to rectify the problems.

Please can you ensure that any outstanding payments are settled before the end of term.
