    As we reach the halfway point of this first half term, I wanted to update you on a few changes going forward.

    Firstly, thank you for your continued support in adhering to the Government guidelines and therefore helping us all keep safe during this pandemic. Please remember to follow the Hands-Face-Space message on school grounds and in the community and to follow isolation guidance should anyone in your household develop symptoms of COVID 19.

  • January Update

    Published 12/01/21

    I wish to pass on a huge thank you for your support over the past few days following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday night. Head Teachers and school staff were sat, like you, watching the news briefing at 8pm without any prior knowledge at what it may contain. It was suspected that a lockdown may follow at some point and that we would have a few days, as we did last March, in order to reorganise plans, however, that was not the case. Indeed, we had left the classrooms on Monday evening set up to welcome over 600 pupils back to school after the Christmas break! Thankfully, we had already drafted a letter in preparation for such an eventuality and created the booking form for Parents of Key Worker and Vulnerable children, so it was just a case of a few adaptations in order for us to share it with you.

  • ParentPay and the School’s Debt Policy

    Published 11/01/18

    ParentPay has been in use at Battling Brook for a few years now and has proved to be easy to use and beneficial to the vast majority of our parents/carers.  Thank you to all who ensure that their child’s account always remains in credit by making regular top-ups on line to pay for both school lunches and visits/activities.

    Published 30/01/15

    For some time now, class teachers have been setting work for children to begin as soon as they come into school at the first, 8.45am bell.  The vast majority of our children arrive early enough to begin their lessons at this time.
