Village Sign


The school uses the Paddock in Finches Lane during the school day for outside learning and play time. Therefore, in line with Government guidance, we ask that the Paddock is not used by children not at school or the community during the school day.
Thank You.

COVID-19 Roadmap
Step 4

Lifting restrictions does not mean that the risks from COVID-19 have disappeared. Instead it marks a new phase in the Government’s response to the pandemic during which people need to manage the risks to themselves and others as the country learns to live with the virus.
It is important to respect and be considerate of those who may wish to take a more cautious approach as restrictions are lifted.

Wiltshire Council draft
Climate Strategy.

The Council is consulting on its draft Climate Strategy from 1 September for six weeks, as it aims to meet its pledge to be carbon neutral by 2030.

The consultation is your chance to help shape the future of Wiltshire in its journey to becoming a carbon neutral county and more resilient to climate impacts. The council will be asking for your views on how you think residents, communities and businesses in the county can all play their part to achieve this.

There will be a chance to attend engagement events to ask questions and share your views during the six weeks of the consultation period, along with an online survey, so please do get involved and help to spread the word.
The full consultation documents and information will be available at from 1 September.
We all have a responsibility to do what we can to tackle this global problem, and your support on a local level will be vital, so please do get involved!
