Head's Message

Head Teacher, S. SavoryWe believe that a positive, mutually supportive partnership between home and school is essential to ensure that each child receives the best education possible. For our part we aim for every child to realise his/her full potential and to enjoy learning in a caring, friendly, secure and ordered environment, while at the same time developing respect and concern for others.

Mr S. Savory, Headteacher

Disability Access

We currently have two parking spaces outside the front of the school that are reserved for disabled visitors who hold a blue badge. Access to the school building is by way of a ramp leading to double doors that are suitable for wheelchair access. There is an intercom system that is placed at a suitable height for wheelchair users. We have a stairlift that provides access between the infant and junior areas of the school where there are three steps. With the exception of the three steps we are all on ground level. We also have a disabled toilet and medical room.

If you are visiting the school and have any specific requirements that you would like to discuss before your visit please contact a member of the office staff on the number at the top of the page. The staff are happy to help with any questions you might have that will assist you when you visit our school.

School Closures

In the event of the academy being closed unexpectedly for any reason the local radio stations will be informed and the Gloucester County Council website will be updated with a list of closures. We will also use ParentMail to notify parents when circumstances allow.

If possible, we will also update this homepage if we have to close the school unexpectedly.
