Car Park

We have purchased new metal bollards to ensure the safe operation of our “drop and go system” Please be cautious on entering and leaving the carpark. Please enter at the end and exit at the top of the car park. Please do not park or drop off at the bottom of the car park as we ask for this area to be kept free for staff to park in the morning. Please ensure that childminders/anyone collecting children are made aware of this arrangement. If you are unsure of this system, please contact Ms. Clarke.

Book Rental/ photocopying

Closing date for payment of Book rental and Photocopying is at the end of September and October respectively. Book rental and photocopying payments can be made on the Aladdin App. Please check your payments section to ensure payment has been made for both. If you are having any difficulty making payment via Aladdin please contact the school.
