The School Day

Classes start at 08:45.  Please ensure that your child is here BEFORE 08:45. The school gates are open from 08:30 so there is no reason to be late. Late arrivals disrupt the learning of your child and others. Please respect our school day.


The New Playground Structure

A big than  you to FoP who helped to provide the top up funding that we needed to add to our National Lottery Grant in building the new playground adventure structure. We have specifically chosen this build in order for all children to be able to use it during play times. We look forward to opening it, on Monday morning, for the first time.

Nativity Play

Copies of the nativity play are available for £5 on CD or £2.50 if you bring in a memory stick for us to upload the video to.  Please see the office staff for more details.

Book Trolley and Bookies Reading Challenge

Thank you to everyone who came along and purchased some lovely new books this week. The book fair will continue to be here on Monday and Tuesday morning.  Don’t forget to keep taking part in the Bookies Reading Challenge to win some great prizes.
