Dear Parents and Carers
Parking and traffic outside of school – update
Further to last week’s newsletter item, we are now working with the Hampshire travel planning team on traffic safety in and around the school. The decision about closing the back pick-up facility and potentially using the back playground as a car park is therefore not yet a confirmed decision. The options are being discussed with the school governors but nothing has been finally agreed, and won’t be agreed until we have taken advice from the Hampshire travel team and completed a full risk assessment. We are looking at various options to help this situation and will keep parents informed.
In the meantime, please can I ask parents to follow these rules to keep people safe:
- Do not park or stop on the coned stretch of road directly outside the front of the school
- Do not park on the grass verge opposite the school driveway
- Keep to a speed limit of 20mph outside of the school
- Be patient even if you are in a rush – safety is paramount

Clubs for Term 2
Next term all of our clubs with external providers will continue. Our school-led clubs of lego club (Mr Cripps), choir club (Mrs Hughes) and craft club (Mrs Britt) will stop. We will offer some new staff-led clubs for term 2. These will be:
Art & Craft
SATs club (Y6 only)
They will be targeted at different age groups (except SATs club). Full details will follow next week.
Parents will have the holiday time to sign up and these clubs will start in week 2 of term 2 (week commencing 8th Jan 2024).
The clubs will continue to run from 3.30-4.15pm, and continue to be charged at £4 per child per session. These funds will go to the school.
