Thank you to Claire Turner for sharing this wonderful picture of 'The Lavender Rainbow'.

We are delighted to announce that Lavender has recently been awarded the Gold Science Quality Mark. This is a great achievement following a lot of hard work by all our staff and children, in particular, our Science Co-ordinator Miss Whiteoak and is a true reflection of all the wonderful science that is taking place across our school.


Please see our new Fundraising page under the Community tab to find ways that you can help us to raise money for the school. All support very much appreciated!

As part of our Letter-join handwriting scheme, any of our pupils wishing to practise their handwriting at home can now log in to the Letter-join website on iPads and tablets as well as desktop and laptop computers. There you will find the same, easy-to-use handwriting resources as we use at school.

For details of how to log in, see our Online Learning page under the Learning Zone tab.



Please can we remind you that there are legal age limits for different applications and websites to help protect children from online danger or risk. Some apps add new features that increase the risk for your children, such as the new Snapchat 'Snap Map'. This feature can make your location visible to others, including strangers!

It is very important that you know and monitor what your child is accessing on the internet. Please let us know if children are using social media inappropriately to upset others, even though it is happening outside school time. We continue to teach our e-safety curriculum but do please come and speak to us if you would like further support or have any questions about keeping your child safe online. 

Thank you.

Tax-free childcare

This is a new government scheme to help eligible parents with the cost of childcare through an online childcare account. For every £8 you put into this account, the government will add an additional £2.  For more information, please look on our Parental information page under the Community tab.

E-safety leaflet - advice for parents and carers

On our Parental information page under the Community tab and on our Safeguarding page under the About us tab, you will find a useful leaflet about keeping your children safe online. This information supports the work that we do in school about e-safety. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
