 We are sorry that due to the hosting of our website at Somerset County Council we are having situations where pages suddenly default to versions from two years ago. We have asked SCC to investigate this but if you do require information and the website isn't giving you what you need please contact the school office on 01460 52686 who will be happy to help.
