We are open to all children of compulsory school age for 32.5 hours each week.  In addition to this, children can access wraparound care and before and after school clubs.

Closure Information

We always endeavour to keep the school open. If we do have to close because of a disruption to our basic services (water, gas, electric) or due to bad weather, we do send a text as soon as possible and put messages on this website and on the Gloucestershire County Council school closures page.

We also notify local radio who air an announcement in these circumstances.
