Swimming Lessons

Secondary Lower pupils will attend fortnightly swimming sessions at the Castle Sports Complex. For this academic year these lessons will take place up until the Easter Holidays. Parents and carers will receive separate communication regarding their child’s swimming group.

2023-2024 Swimming has been postponed until further notice.

Electronic Devices

Pupils’ mobile phones, iPads, MP3 players etc must be handed to the class teacher or teaching assistant for safe keeping and collected at home time. 

Wet Breaks

Pupils will remain in classrooms supervised by staff where snacks and drinks may be eaten. Every classroom will have games and activities for orderly indoor breaks.


Communication is essential for the smooth daily running of the school. Parents, carers and staff request a home/school communication book to ensure messages and information is easily shared. Alternatively, you may wish to establish regular communication via telephone or email. All initial contact should be directed to the class team. 


If your child is not well enough to attend school, please phone the school and leave a message. Please note that if a pupil is sick they should remain at home for 48 hours after the last time they were sick.
