Is my child too ill for school?

The NHS gives advice on whether to send your child to school.  Here is the link to the NHS website’s ‘Is my child too ill for school?’ page which gives specific recommendations, for various illnesses, including Covid 19.

Poorly Children

If your child has sickness or diarrhoea, please remember they need to stay at home for 48 hours after the last  episode.

Teachers to Parents

The school uses a text service to send out information to parents.  If you are not receiving these, please contact the school office to update your contact details.

School Closures

School closures will be posted on the Norfolk School Closures Site

Parent View Questionnaire

We have set up an online feedback form for parents/carers to complete at anytime. These forms are anonymous, if you have an issue that requires a response or action, please contact the school directly.


We have a section specifically for parents on our E-safety page.

Making a Payment

We would encourage all parents/carers to use our online booking and payments system, Eduspot (Schoolmoney). If you need help with accessing this please contact the office.

School Lunches

School lunches cost £2.50 per day.  Meals must be booked online by Wednesday at midnight for the following week’s lunches. If lunches aren’t booked by this deadline lunch bookings will be taken in class on Thursday for the following week. If you use the class booking method then payments for lunches must be sent into school as soon as possible.

In order that we can continue to offer our pupils a high standard of teaching and learning, the Governors have requested that we follow the School’s policy for charging and ask parents for a nominal voluntary contribution of £7 per term towards the cost of materials such as:-

  • Food Technology ingredients– a highly valuable element of our curriculum is preparing our students for independent and healthy living (we do not ask parents to buy and send ingredients in to school)
  • Art & Craft materials including paints, pastels, textiles and clay

And in upper school and sixth form:-

  • Vocational equipment
  • Duke of Edinburgh
  • Design and technology including wood
  • KS4 – materials specific to option choices
