Emergency Contact

Have we got your latest contact details including changes of mobile numbers?

Please ensure we have your latest contact details so that we can contact you if your child needs you during the school day.

Medicine Form

Does your child need medication during the school day?

If your child needs medication during the school day you will need to sign an agreement with the school. We do not normally give medicines to children and will not be able to give medicines unless they are prescribed by a doctor. If your child is ill they need to be at home - we don't have the facilities to care for them in school. If your child becomes ill during the school day we will contact you and ask you to collect them straight away. However, long term conditions can be catered for with a special agreement between parents and the school - for example for allergies, asthma and epilepsy. Please click and complete the Medicine Form and return it to the school office.

Morning Entry

The procedure for morning entry has changed. Here is a copy of the the letter sent to all parents and carers regarding the revised arrangements.

Bad Weather

In the event of snow, our priority is always the safety of our pupils, parents and staff. Every effort will be made to keep school open, but we recognise that a number of pupils and staff travel quite a distance to school. This will be taken into account when deciding whether or not to close school. If heavy snow has fallen and school has to be closed, the website ( and Twitter Feed (@muggintonCE) will be updated and a text message sent out to parents by 8am.

Playground Surface

Staff and governors are committed to keeping all children safe at all times. We are aware the playground can become slippery in winter conditions. If you would like to learn more about what we are doing to maintain the playground surface, please click here.

Community Access

We provide a notice board by the main entrance to signpost parents to other venues offering facilities such as sports, arts and IT.

Study Support

The small class sizes in our school ensure that there is a small pupil/teacher ratio and that teachers are able to plan, teach and support a curriculum which is tailored to individual needs. We also have a qualified higher learning teaching assistant (HLTA), a teaching assistant(TA) and a Special Educational Needs (SEN) teaching assistant (TA) who are able to deliver specific programmes of work to individual pupils or small groups. The friendly, family atmosphere which encourages parents/carers to come in to school regularly ensures that regular informal discussion takes place and parents are aware of their child's progress. There are also parents’ evenings in the autumn and spring term and a comprehensive end of year report.

Quality Childcare

The school provides details of local Ofsted Registered Childcare Providers including day nursery provision and childminders. Early Birds Club runs at school each day from 8am to 9am. After-School Clubs run every day from 3.15pm to 4.30pm.

Parenting Support

Information sessions are available for parents and carers of children joining Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) or when joining our school following a transfer. Family learning sessions are offered to parents. A notice board by the main entrance signposts parents to local and national sources of advice and support.

Swift & Easy referral

Staff are aware of their responsibilities and the school has clear internal processes for referral to outside agencies for children with special educational needs. Referrals are assessment based, managed by named individuals (Mr Green), working in partnership with a variety of other professional agencies.
