A letter has now been published by the Governing Body regarding the outcome of the consultation on the proposed conversion to a Multi-Academy Trust.

As parents/carers will be aware, we are now using Schoolcomms to send out school communications via email and text message.

In addition, Schoolcomms has the facility to enable parents/carers to make online payments via the School Gateway smartphone app or website. Parents/carers will also be able to view school meal balances and purchases, and top up school meals money at any time.

To set up online payments, you will need to use the website to complete the initial setup; click the icon above to go to the School Gateway website. If you are unable to log in, it may be because the school doesn’t have your current email and mobile phone number on record. Please contact the school and we will update the details on our system.
