Statutory published materials

Every local-authority-maintained school must publish specific information on its website to comply with The School Information (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2016.

You will find this information at various places around the school website, along with a host of interesting and useful other information. Visitors particularly enjoy seeing the class and subject blogs and the newsletters.
