Important Information for Parents (most recent)



Age Concern

There will be a box in the school entrance hall for donations of tins and packets of food for the Age Concern ‘Christmas Tin Appeal.’  Age Concern were delighted with the contributions made last year and were able to distribute 250 hampers to those in need.

Themed School Dinner

The next themed lunch is on Wednesday 5th November when there will be a bonfire menu.

Dinner Money 

If you prefer to pay your dinner money for the term in advance, the cost for next term is £66.30.  Cheques should be made out to Derbyshire County Council.

Temporary Museum

We would like to set up a temporary museum in our library for our themed World War I week.  If anyone would be prepared to let us borrow any artefacts connected with the 1914 to 1918 period we would really appreciate it.  Please do not send in anything valuable or anything that is fragile, as the objects will be looked at and possibly touched by children.  Thank you.  Our themed week runs from November 10th to Friday 14th.


World War I Art Competition

As part of our recognition of the centenary of World War I we are holding an art competition.  The children can design anything that is symbolic of WWI.  All entries must be given to the children’s class teacher by Friday 7th November.  1st prize is a special edition £20 silver coin kindly donated by the PTA.  There is one for the best infant entry and one for the best junior.  Please click here for full details.


Applying for a Secondary School Place

If your child was born between 1st September 2003 and 31st August 2004, you MUST apply by midnight on 31st October to get them a place at secondary school.  You can apply online at www.derbyshire.gov.uk/admissions or call 01629 537479.


Hearing Readers

We need volunteers to test Mental Maths Targets or hear children read in class.  If anyone can spare an afternoon or a morning to help us, we would be really grateful.  Please contact either the office or Mrs Marsland if you would like to help us in this way.
