Dear Families,


We regret to inform you that during a routine boiler service on Friday, a critical part was found to be irreparably damaged. As a result, the school currently has no hot water.


Mr Blakey and members of the team have been diligently working to find a solution, including reaching out to multiple external agencies. However, there is no viable short-term fix that would allow us to ensure safe handwashing for children, cooking facilities for the kitchen staff, and proper nappy-changing procedures.


The safety of our children is our utmost priority, and the school cannot operate without reliable access to hot water. According to the School Premises (England) Regulations 2012, schools must provide an adequate supply of hot water in toilets and washing facilities. Failure to comply with these standards presents a significant health and safety risk.

Initially, we were informed that the necessary part would not be available until Wednesday. However, thanks to Mr Blakey's efforts, we have managed to secure the part and an engineer to install it on Monday morning.


Consequently, the school will be closed on Monday. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and especially as we have already had a closure this year. Please be assured that we have explored all possible options to avoid closing the school. We understand the impact this decision has on both the children and our families who depend on us. We are particularly disappointed that our youngest children will miss their special travelling farm visit, which will need to be postponed.


Our aim, once we had explored all options, is always to let you know with as much notice as we could.

Thank you for your understanding and support.


Kind regards,


Mrs Paula Phillips

Dearest families,

We are absolutely delighted to share the results of our recent OFSTED with you.

There are five categories:

  • Quality of education
  • Behaviour
  • Personal development
  • Early Years
  • Leadership and management

and we have been judged as outstanding in every single one of these!

Under the new challenging framework, this represents a significant achievement. We are bursting with pride and happiness to share this news with you -  and especially after such a challenging past few years.

Please can I say a huge thank you to the staff and governor team for their love, dedication and commitment to their roles. And thanks also to you for your ongoing support and to your wonderful children!

There is an old African proverb which states: ‘It takes a village to raise a child’

Together we are so strong and we can achieve so much.

I enclose the PDF copy of the report and it will be uploaded by OFSTED onto their website within 8 working days.

Please do share the report with others to spread the word about our lovely school!

And rest assured that we will continue to develop and grow – always aiming to be the very best that we be!

Happy reading and we hope you have a wonderful weekendJ


Warmest regards


From an absolutely beaming Paula Phillips J
