Should you have any queries or comments about school please follow these steps

  • First, speak with your child’s class teacher or contact the Office directly
  • If your issue is not resolved please speak to the Key Stage Leader

Foundation stage (Nursery and Reception) – Miss Ireland
Key Stage 1 (Year 1 and 2) – Miss Denison
Lower Key Stage 2 (Year 3 and 4) – Mrs Thompson
Upper Key Stage 2 (Year 5 and 6) – Mr Haughton

or alternatively please contact the following people
