We are amazingly well supported by the wonderful Mrs Pearce.

Most of us went to Little Otters Playgroup at Slimbridge School so we know each other already!  We are looking forward to meeting our Year 6 Buddies and working with them this year.

COVID-19 – Beware of false information

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are hearing about some FALSE information circling about our COVID-19 response, which you should be aware of.


1) There are emails arriving with parents which tell them that the school can help with financial difficulties. They just need to give details of their bank. THIS IS NOT TRUE. Please be wary – we never ask for details of your bank accounts.

2) There are individuals offering themselves as “teachers” to help parents by teaching their children whilst not in school. Please be extra wary of this. For any educational needs – please contact the school directly or use the school website/updates via Tapestry for updates from our teachers about the work children can be doing whilst at home.
