Adverse Weather Preparation

We always aim to open the school; but in the case of adverse weather, we will strive to inform you by 7am, via the website, twitter, Eagle Radio (96.4) and a message will be left on our school telephone system; if the school is closed.


Families Magazine

Please find the link to your local Families publication below. The publication provides local news and information, health and education advice for families. It is a great recourse for you to find out about local clubs, classes and other family related businesses available in the area. The What’s On section is extremely useful, especially during the holidays!  (Jan/Feb issue 2020)


Smart Watches

We have noticed that a number of our pupils are wearing children’s smart watches to school.  As these have camera and games functions on them, unfortunately they are not appropriate for school and should be left at home.  We are happy for children to wear a watch, but should be a plain basic watch and please be aware that we cannot take any responsibility for these.


Surfers and Ocean Club

Please note the mobile number for Surfers and Ocean Club has changed and is now 07394571311.


Healthy Lunches

Please click here ( to see an article published this week on BBC for making your child’s packed lunch healthy.


Head Lice

We have had a few cases of head lice in the school.  Please can you check your child’s hair over the weekend.  Your local pharmacist can give advice on suitable treatment.


The Words of the Week were

Infants        -        nervous – easy to scare.  Always worrying about something

Juniors        -        ambiguous – not very clear, open to interpretation.  Could be one answer or another


Riddle of the Week for pupils (last answer: chase parked cars)

Where do cows go for their holidays?
