Transition Information

Dear parents and carers, we know that you are starting to think about September and class changes so we just wanted to make you aware of what we have been doing to get ready for this in school.  Reports have been written and will be delivered to you shortly and they will have your child's new class teacher on them.  Those children who may find change particularly difficult will also receive a document with photographs of their new teacher, any other staff who will be working in that year group and their classroom and cloakroom.  In the final week of term, teachers will put video messages on Seesaw saying hello to their new class.  

We know that our transition usually involves classroom visits and our very successful All About Me Day but we cannot do those things this year so we have tried to think of the best ways around it that we can.

When the children come back to school and move into their new classes, we will plan lots of getting to know you activities and provide a short period of transition in the first week.

As always, if you are worried about your child or have any questions, we are open and can take your call. 

For the the latest corona virus risk assessment (JUNE 2020) please click on the following link.

For information regarding year group transition and year 6 transition to Minsthorpe please click on the following link.


The school office is open from 8 am to 3 pm so if you have any worries, concerns or questions about your child's learning, please do not hesitate to contact us.



Use the drop down menu's to find learning support in a range of curriculum areas.

From Monday 6th April, children who are entitled to free school meals (not universal Key Stage 1 meals) will be provided with a box of food for the week.
The box will contain ingredients which can be used to make lunches each day for your children.
They will be available for collection on Mondays between 11:45 and 12:45 with the exception of Monday 13th April (Easter Monday), this box will be available on Tuesday 14th April.
If your child has a free school meal and is in school, from Monday 6th April, you will need to use the ingredients in the box to provide their lunch each day.

This new method of working will hopefully reduce the amount of time people need to be out of the house and make it easier for those who cannot get to supermarkets and other shops at the moment.

Good morning everyone, we hope that you are well and staying safe.
If you have any safeguarding concerns during this time, please ring school or email on
You could also speak to people at Wakefield Social Care 0345 850 3503 or contact the NSPCC.
If you think anyone is in immediate danger, you should ring 999.
Thank you
Mrs Williamson


We pride ourselves on our welcoming atmosphere where all are respected, valued and encouraged to reach their full potential.  We offer teaching which supports each child achieving their potential in a happy, friendly, caring community. Children enjoy a varied and stimulating curriculum and they have plenty of scope to establish a broad range of friendships where newcomers integrate with ease.

As a considerably improving school, we have been selected to be involved in a Parliamentary Review, alongside senior and Cabinet ministers, including The Right Hon Philip Hammond, to highlight best practice and raise standards in primary education.  See below.
