Hello TPA parents, wanting to know how to explain the difference being being “not racist” and being “anti-racist”, this is a great piece done by BBC Bitesize with the great John Amaechi OBE, clear and simple to understand. Go on have a look.
Not-racist v anti-racist: what’s the difference? John Amaechi describes the difference between being not-racist and anti-racist.
Last chance to buy raffle tickets for our end of year PTA drinks stash clear out!
Raffle will be held (remotely) on Wednesday evening. Buy your raffle tickets ASAP here: https://classlist.page.link/YMSdkXXhdQPZQeMn9
WOW! The front of school is completely transformed! Weeds and tree roots taken out, the birch taken down (and repurposed to pad out two bug hotels), sleepers tidying up the borders and even a Principal's Platform for Mr J.
Amazing work y3/4 parents Gerry, Emma, Therese and Ben! Can't wait to see it all planted up.
Welcome back to every year group this week! 🎉🎉🎉
Our pop up shop is now open all afternoon! Lots of excellent quality 2nd hand uniform available (and free balloons!).😀
Wonderful to see so many at our socially distanced 2nd hand uniform sale today.
Our pop up shop is open again tomorrow from 2pm. We still have loads of items in stock (and hopefully it won’t rain like it did today)!
Thank you to everyone who donated school uniform. ♻️♻️♻️ It’s raised £200 and found new homes for some great quality clothing.
Also big cheers to Akta, Cassie and Erika for lending a helping hand.
Welcome back to Reception and Year 1 this week 🌈
To help with drop off / pick up, Colne Road is now a school street. Thank you to everyone in the school community who made this happen 👏

It’s Thank A Teacher Day today. Thank you to all our teachers. We miss you! Love, the kids x
We did a little pebble art and have left them around the school, Twickenham and Strawberry Hill, plus with a few friends on the way. Have a go and leave some messages of Joy, Hope and Friendship around the town. More to follow (actual weatherproof ones) watch out. (Love Poppy and Kitty)
Some wonderful artwork from the children. Thank you to everyone who sent in their pictures 🌈🎨😍
