Children receive a Principal's newsletter each Friday with information for parents about latest academy news and upcoming events. Please make sure you are receiving these on a weekly basis. A copy can be obtained from the office or here on our website under the newsletters icon.







Homework is given out to all Year groups and is expected to be completed in the children's homework books that they have been provided with. Please ensure your child does take care of these books and returns them completed when expected by their class teacher.








The children are also asked to be heard read every night for a minimum of 15 minutes and practise their times tables on daily basis so they are able to recall these facts quickly.

All children have also a log on for bug club which can be found inside of their reading books where digital books are also allocated.
