The Parent Portal (Frog) has undergone some changes and has now become the ‘Homework Portal’ – a one stop shop for parents to gain an insight into their child’s learning.

17/01/18 PTA Meeting

Due to weather conditions the school is closed and as such tonight’s PTA meeting has been cancelled.

Consultation on Proposal to Dispose of School Land

It is proposed that a very small part of unused school land at the bottom of the playing fields is to be disposed of to The Co-Operative Food (part of Wooldale Co-Operative Society) on Springwood Road in order to develop a customer car park. The school is not receiving any financial gain from the disposal. This proposed development will improve highway safety, reduce congestion and also improve security for the school.

To comply with relevant legislation for the disposal of school land, we are required to inform you of this proposal. The land to be disposed of is currently not used by the school, its proposed disposal will in no way have any adverse impact on learning and teaching for our students.

I am very happy to meet with anyone that may wish to discuss the proposal. Please could you let me have any feedback about the proposal by 26th January 2018.
