Can we ask that you regularly check your children’s hair for headlice/nits please and we also ask that long hair is tied up whilst in school in an effort to eradicate this pest!! Thank you.

Mobile phone numbers:

Please ensure that you inform us when you change your mobile telephone number! It could be very important that we contact you regarding your child(ren).

Celebration Assembly:

Our Celebration Assembly is held every Friday morning in the Hall. Parents and Grandparents are invited to join us all to share our achievements for the week. We also celebrate what our pupils do outside of school. Headteacher Awards and Shining Star Awards are also given out.


Please ensure that all items of uniform are clearly named to avoid them ending up in the ‘lost property’. Thank you. All uniform items can be ordered via Nationwide School Uniforms in Spilsby. See the uniform options here.

PE Kits:

Could children please have their PE kits in school everyday? As the weather is often very unpredictable children should have jogging bottoms and sweatshirts. Children do need to get changed for PE for health and safety. If they get wet, they cannot be sat in wet clothes for the rest of the day!


Please note that jewellery should not be worn in school apart from stud earrings and these need to be taken out or covered during PE. This is a health and safety issue.

Free School Meals:

If you think your child(ren) might qualify for free school meals, please see Mrs Kawkins in the office or visit Lincolnshire County Council Free school meals entitlement website.

Diarrhoea and Sickness:

Children can return to school 48 hours AFTER their last bout of diarrhoea and sickness.


The school now has a full-time clothing collection point outside the front of the school. The metal clothing container can accept the following unwanted items:

All men’s, ladies and children’s clothing; paired shoes (tied together); handbags, bags, ties and belts; soft toys; blankets; underwear to include socks, tights, pants, bras, etc; household textiles such as towels, bed linen, curtains, etc.

Please do not put any of the following in:

Duvets both synthetic and feathered; carpets; rugs; soiled or wet clothing.

Thank you.
