The School Day

The partnership between the child, home and school is very important. Working together, we can offer your child the best opportunities to develop as a learner. We aim for excellence and enjoyment in learning, so that children will engage actively in all that they do. It is in this way that we hope to establish the foundations for enquiring minds to continue developing when they leave our school.school day 1school day 2chickens

Transport


If you are driving to the school, please do not park on the side of the road near the playground and consider our neighbours by not blocking their access. As soon as a member of staff is on duty, please “drop and go”, this will avoid traffic congestion.

Ethos & Values


Our aims and vision pages give a flavour of our ethos and values.

Arriving for school:


The bell will ring twice at 08:55. At the first ring pupils have to stand quiet and still, and at the second ring pupils walk to their class lines. Mrs Gardener is usually in the playground before school so is often able to answer quick questions.

School lunches:


A menu is available from the school office, and you can if you wish chose those days and hence meals that you would like your child to have – just write down what they would like on which day when you put their dinner money in their bag on a Monday morning. Please bring dinner money in a named purse or envelope. Parents can dine with their children at anytime (except Christmas dinner day), just order from the office first thing in the morning.

Friday collection for Alma Khatun:

Bad Weather

If the weather is so bad that it is dangerous, listen to the local radio or log in to Norfolk County Council for information concerning school closures.
