Comic Relief

Thank you to everyone who has made a donation to Comic Relief, we have raised £83.00 so far, if you still wish to donate you can do this on ParentPay, click the 'Comic Relief Red Nose Day Donations' payment item.

The children look great, it's fantastic to see them all back in school and looking so happy!


We have noticed that a number of children are playing in the churchyard after school. This has given rise to a complaint from a member of the public relating to children running and jumping on her mother's grave. Clearly, this is disrespectful and unacceptable. We would like to remind everyone that in the interests of safety they should be leaving the site as soon as possible after school, and children should always behave responsibly in the graveyard.

Tarpaulins or Polythene Sheets

Do you have any large tarpaulins or polythene sheets that you no longer need? We have been advised to use these for weed control in the wildlife area prior to planting wild flowers. If you are able to donate any to school, please bring them in next week.

Learning Reviews

You should have received information about the Learning Review day on 12th April. Don't forget to book an session through our online system as teachers are very keen to ensure that they have a conversation with all families.

School Lunches

Next week is our Easter Lunch on Wednesday 24th March. We will be on Week 2 of the lunch menu.

Can you please ensure you discuss the menu each day with your child so they can decide what they would like for lunch. Once they know their choices, they will choose this each morning with their teacher during registration.

If your child has chosen to have the Easter Lunch they will be on school lunches for the whole of next week. If your child starts the week with a packed lunch, they will be on packed lunches for the whole of that week.

Each day there are 3 choices, either the hot dinner, the sandwich or the jacket potato with a choice of 3 toppings. The sandwich and jacket potato always come with a selection of vegetables/salad on the side and have the full pudding choice for that day.
