Parking on private driveways

Private driveways, resident bays and dropped kerbs are not for morning drop offs. Please ensure you - or your childminder - do not park in front of local residents' driveways. Already this term I have received complaints from residents, one where a parent of ours was quite confrontational when asked to move her car. A number of cars have also blocked the emergency entrance to the school on Helena Road this term. Again, this space should remain clear at all times.

After a year of great effort and commitment, we finished the summer term with excellent results in Years 2 and 6. Equally, our children in the Reception classes achieved very well and have now settled into their Year 1 classes. This is an exciting and challenging year with schools adapting to a new curriculum, and, of course, free school lunches for all children under seven. Our teachers spent most of the spring and summer designing a new curriculum that builds further upon a learning structure that is already rigorous and successful, and we look forward to sharing in the children's experience of it over time.
