Foundation Phase Wedding

Many thanks for your support with the Foundation Phase wedding.  It was a memorable occasion and enjoyed by all.  Huge thanks to Mrs Ainsworth for her help with the disco and photo booth.


Foundation Phase

Following our recent trip to the Sea Aquarium last half term, when we advised you that Tim Pugh, the Artist was going to join us to do some art work on the beach, unfortunately this did not take place as he was unable to attend due to unforeseen circumstances.  However, we are pleased to inform you that he will be coming into school on Tuesday 17th July to work with the children.


School Meals

Please remember to pay for school meals on School Gateway, in advance for the coming week.  Thank you to those who do this.  Any debt of £25.00 will result in your child needing to bring in sandwiches from home.


Breakfast Club

The charge for a full week is £5 or £1 per day if you wish to arrive between 8.00am and 8.15am. The charge for the last term Monday 4th June to Friday 20th July is 35 days £35.00 for the half term.  Please pay online via School Gateway stating the days clearly that the payment is for or you may, for Breakfast Club only, send the money in an envelope, clearly labelled with child’s name and days you wish to use the club and hand this to Ms Evans/Mrs Bellis on first entry. Please pay on a Monday for the coming week.   Please make sure you arrive before 8.30an in order to eat breakfast.


Foundation Phase Snack – Nursery to Year 2

We do ask that snack money is paid at the beginning of the term as it makes it difficult to provide a healthy snack for the children if payment is not made promptly. 

This will be £7.00 (Nursery, Reception, Year 1 & 2) and £5.60 for Early Entitlement for the term – Monday 4th June to Friday 20th July.   Please note that this includes Year 2.
