Here are Class Easter Projects for you to try! CLICK HERE

Here are some ideas so that you can plan a FUN FRIDAY!​

As you will be aware school is now closed. As directed, all teachers have prepared School Closure Packs for all pupils and if you have not been able to pick one up please go to the school website and use these resources to help you organise home learning activities.  The Home Learning Page is now on the school website with lots of ideas in order to support your child’s learning in a positive way. 

Please continue to log onto this website for news. We would be delighted to receive emails with photographs of the work the children are doing at home so that we can share this success on the website. Please email your class teachers on the new class email addresses we have set up:

For KS1 and 2 there is an email for each year group just add year1, year2, year3, year4, year5 or year6  to like this

A message for the children:

Please get into a routine so that you get school work done every dayTry to get some fresh air or exercise at home! Be creative and let your imagination free! Lose yourself in a good book! Please pray for our school community every day and help out at home! 




Dear Parents,

We are concerned about the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on pupils currently eligible for benefits-related free school meals. The Department for Education is in the process of developing a national scheme to provide supermarket vouchers via Edenred. Please note, this is only for those children that are eligible and currently in receipt of benefits-related free school meals. Those that are eligible have been contacted by the school already. An ‘eCode’ will be sent directly to the parent or carers of the pupils(s) eligible for free school meals once the system is up and running after the Easter holidays.​

We are aware of some confusion as currently every child in Southwark that is not entitled to a benefits-related free school meal receives a ‘Free Healthy School Meal’ which is funded by Southwark and Public Health England, these children are not entitled to funding through this scheme. If you think that your family circumstances entitle you to make a claim for benefits related Free School Meals, you can find further information regarding this and pupil premium entitlement on the link below:


A message for families from Southwark Council

We understand there are many children and families who have high needs and we will continue to have these families in mind and do what we can to offer them the support and help they need when we are able to. The council has a webpage that you may find useful with details of support including a hardship fund for emergency support.

Here is some more information about how Southwark may be able to help you.

The telephone number for the fund is 0207 525 2434
