Well done Pi’ers

Welcome to the school website. We are very proud of our school and what the children who attend here achieve. Their success is due to our high expectations, our dedication to constantly improve what we do, our belief that all children are entitled to the best education possible and our absolute commitment to being truly inclusive; celebrating and developing the individual.

If you are a part of the school community already we hope you find the revamped website useful and supportive. If you are using the website to find out about us please feel free to pop in and see us for real - we look forward to meeting you.

We wish everybody a successful and enjoyable academic year.

Kind Regards

Vicky Prior and the staff team

Class 2 and class 3 are currently playing around with a piece of free software called Scratch. You can find a link to a web page with more information by clicking on the cat next to the school logo at the top of this page.

It’s just a step in to simple programming but the children are really enjoying the experience and I wanted to share that with you. As our skills develop we will be moving on to creating simple games and applications. Yr 5 and Yr 6 will also progress on to using Raspberry Pi technology. Which is very exciting - I will update the class 3 page with more information soon.


This years parent questionnaire is now available to download or pick up in school. Could all responses please be returned by half term. Don’t forget to complete and detach the slip on the back for entry in to the competition to win a bottle of wine and some chocolates. Many thanks to those who have already competed their questionnaire.

Kind Regards - Mr B
