Pavement Works opposite the school.

Please be aware that the pavement directly opposite the Academy will be closed to the public for the next 3 weeks as services are being installed. Please ensure your child is extra careful whilst the work is taking place across the road - the area is already congested and this is only going to add to road safety issues at the beginning and end of the the day.

Parent Pay

We are sorry that Parentpay is still not available for Year 5 parents. We are doing all we can to rectify this and hope this will be very soon. Parents of our current Year 6, 7 & 8 pupils have the option to pay for items purchased from the academy canteen on Parentpay.   Please be aware that the tills are not updating the system currently so your balance may not be up to date.  Parents can pay for items such as trips by bringing cash or a cheque to the Academy Office. Thank you for your patience with this matter.
