Our Vision

We believe that our children should have the aspiration and opportunity to ‘Live life in all its fullness’ and ‘Shine like stars in the sky’.
New this week…
Books and Biscuits club
A reminder there is no books and biscuits next week (4th July).  
Watch this space for special books and biscuits club before the end of term
Matilda tickets
Tickets have now been allocated and will be coming home with your child in the next day.  Additional tickets have also been included for those who have requested them.  Payments for these additional tickets will be loaded onto Parent Pay on Monday.  If you requested additional tickets and do not receive them, please contact school as we had several parents who did not put their names on the form.
The children who are involved in the production on Friday 5th July do not need to come into school wearing uniform, they can come in casual, comfy clothes, suitable for rehearsing in.
Wellbeing Wild Water Day
Thank you for your offers of help and equipment, we will be in touch as soon as we have a confirmed date.  Fingers crossed for good weather for the week commencing 8th July 2024!
Free School Meals
As you know, families that meet certain criteria may be eligible for benefits-related Free School Meals. We want to support our families to apply to receive these for free wherever applicable.  Alongside free lunch during term time, being registered for benefits-related Free School Meals also entitles your child to free activities and meals during the Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays through FEAST.
Further, when students are registered for benefits-related Free School Meals, our school receives additional funding (known as Pupil Premium), which is pooled and used for extra support and initiatives throughout school. It’s vital for everyone that all children who are eligible for Free School Meals are registered as such.
The automated FEAST vouchers have been sent out to registered eligible families/students. What do I need to do? If you are not in receipt of Free School Meals and believe you are eligible, you can apply for Free School Meals on the North Yorkshire Council website here: https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/education-and-learning/free-school-meals

Extra support during the summer holidays for parents of children with SEND or disabilities
When your child has additional needs, life can be incredibly demanding. While first and foremost you may see yourself as a parent, you are also a carer and that means there is support available and we are here to help you:
Finding the right support and services for your child may feel overwhelming, especially at the time you first get a diagnosis or when significant changes are happening, like starting or changing schools, or when your child is approaching 18. We can help you:
  • Navigate the health, social care and education systems for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), including the benefits and grants you might be eligible for.
  • Find out what services and support for you and your family are available locally.
  • Support brothers and sisters of your SEND child through our Young Carer service.
  • Look after yourself, with emotional and practical support that we offer to all carers.
