As you know it our policy NOT to allow children to bring mobile phones/tablets in to school. It has come to our attention that some older children have these devices in school - PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CHILD TO DO THIS.

Abbey Gates has been a designated National Support School since 2012 and our team support local schools in many ways. Kaye McGuire has been asked to support two schools over the Summer term on a full time secondment basis with effect from 18th April. We will miss her infectious enthusiasm for virtually everything and look forward to welcoming her back!
