Hello everyone….

Today your child has come home with a Sponsor Form for our up coming Sponsored Walk on the 19th October.

Please could your fill in their name and class and encourage them to get sponsorship from friends and family, to raise money for our school. They can either sponsor per lap (there will be 10 laps) or do a maximum amount.

Your child then brings their form in on the day of the walk and their teacher will sign it, to show that they have completed it.

The children can then collect their money and bring it into school. We will keep you updated with our totals and publish photos of what we have spent with it.

Don’t forget your child can either dress in fancy dress on the day or follow the theme of “Colours of the World”.

Spare sponsor forms are available from the school office.

Thank-you to you all for your brilliant support because……..

It has been brought to our attention, yet again, that parents are continuing to park unsafely outside the school.

Please be mindful of other parents and especially young children when you are dropping off/picking up your children. If you are parking unsafely on the path then you are forcing children and pushchairs into the road, which is causing a hazard.


Welcome Back to a new year and new languages to explore.

Dear Parents,

Please find attached the first newsletter of the year for your kind attention.


Please see below for the dates of our "Show and Shares".

This is a great opportunity for parents to come into the school and meet their child's class teacher. The children will then be able to show you the work they have completed so far and tell parents all about what topics they will be covering that term.

We strongly encourage parents to attend as valuable information is given and enables any questions that you are not sure of to be answered.

These will be in the Hall:

Year 6 - Wednesday 13th September
Year 4 - Tuesday 12th September
Year 1 - Tuesday 19th September
Year 3 - Wednesday 20th September
Year 5 - Thursday 21st September
Reception - Monday 25th September (in their classrooms)
Year 2 - Wednesday 27th September

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible.


This year’s Summer Reading Challenge officially finishes on Saturday 9th September. 📚

We are currently THIRD .....

Come on everyone let's see if we can climb even higher!!!!!


Please can all children bring in a re-usable water bottle.

We do NOT 🚫accept PRIME bottles as water bottles in school - as they are not proper or appropriate water bottles and can easily spread bacteria even if washed through.
