Starting Arrangements for September 2022
Please find below a letter detailing the starting arrangements for your child from Monday 5th September 2022.
Please find below a link to our admissions form which needs to be completed online for every child by the end of June.
Our school uniform can be purchased from the NK group. We ask that each child has a school book bag, PE bag, cardigan/jumper, PE t-shirt (your child's initials can be added) and PE hoodie (again the initials can be added on).

Free School Meals
All pupils in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 are entitled to Universal Infant Free School Meals, this means that you will not need to pay for a dinner for your child for their first three years at school. This is different to Free School Meals (FSM) entitlement. If your child is entitled to FSM we’ll receive extra funding called ‘pupil premium’. We use this extra money to improve the educational provision and resources at the school and to support parents with the cost of school trips and school uniform.
If you think your child might be entitled to FSM further information, including a link to an eligibility checker with North Somerset Council, can be found here:
Ordering School Meals
Below is a letter about the process for ordering school meals. We use a system called Select hosted by our catering provider Aspens. Parents/carers are responsible for ordering their child's dinner each day. Your child's unique code for registering your account will be provided once your child has started school.
Payments and Communications
We are a cashless school and will be using a system called Schoolcomms to take online payments for trips, clubs, PTA events and wraparound care from September. Your child's unique account details will be provided once they start school.
We also use a system called SchoolPing to communicate with parents/carers. The system sends messages, letters and forms to keep you up-to-date with news and events and also to book parents evening slots. The best way to use SchoolPing is download the app if you have a smart phone and allow notifications. We will also get this system set-up when your child starts school.
In addition, the school has a private Facebook group which is only for parents/carers, an open Facebook page and a Twitter account where we share news and events. Once your child has started school you are welcome to send a request to join the private Facebook group. Please note that photos which include your child will only feature in these forms of social media (including the website) if you give your permission when completing the admission form.
