As a large and vibrant school, we have a wealth of activities and visits going on most of the time. For your convenience, we will publish these events on the 'diary' page. However, to avoid confusion, we will only list whole school or whole year group events, with the exception of class assemblies. If your child is involved in a smaller group visit or activity, you will receive a letter directly. The majority of school trips will require you to provide a packed lunch, unless your child is eligible for free school meals. Please do check individual school trip letters for further information (medical needs, collection times, etc.).
A new feature of the school’s website allows you to subscribe to events from the school calendar so that they download into your own personal calendar on your mobile phone, tablet or computer.
All you need to do is visit the calendar on the school website and click the link called ‘Link the school events to your personal calendar’. You can then choose from three options: to add to your default calendar (for example, on an iPhone it will go to the iPhone calendar); to add it to your Google calendar; or input it to your calendar programme of choice.
Things to know:
• If the school edits its calendar, the updates will appear automatically in your calendar (the time that this takes to happen will depend on your calendar programme).
• You cannot edit the events in the school calendar.
• All events will pull through in one colour only, not the colours set by the school.
• You can name the calendar and choose how often to receive updates (we recommend you set this to as often as possible).
• You can unsubscribe via your own calendar at any time.
If you have any questions or feedback, please let the office know and we can forward them to the school’s website provider.
