Happy New Year!

We hope all our families had a relaxing Christmas and we are looking forward to another exciting term ahead.

Covid Cases

Obviously, Covid cases are escalating locally. Please continue to help us by maintaining good control measures and remaining vigilant for signs of infection in your children. One prevalent symptom in local cases recently has been a severe headache.

Match Funding

Does your business provide any match-funding opportunities for its employees? If so, we would welcome an application on behalf of our school. The PTA continue to raise money to support the things that we do, and if we are able to obtain any additional funding from businesses this would be really welcomed. If you need any further information for an application please do not hesitate to contact a member of the PTA or the school office.


We are excited about starting a new PSHE scheme this term – Jigsaw. This was introduced to children this week. Some activities involve a cat: Jerrie. If your child talks about a cat in school please don’t worry, we don’t have a new pet! It is a cuddly toy that sits in each classroom.

Operation Warm Welcome

In the next couple of weeks we are hoping to welcome a new family to school. They have been housed in the local area as part of Operation Warm Welcome and will join our school on a permanent basis. We are looking forward to them starting with us and are sure that we will all extend a warm welcome to them!


Please encourage your child to bring a pair of wellies into school in a bag for playtimes. The cold weather makes the playground dangerously slippery, but if children have wellies we will be able to allow them to play on the field during icy conditions.

School Lunches

Please see the new Spring 2022 Lunch menu below. Next week we will be on Week 2 of lunches.

Children can decide daily whether they are having a school dinner or packed lunch.

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

Each day there are 4 choices, either the hot dinner, hot vegetarian option, jacket potato with a choice of toppings or a sandwich. 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.

Spring 2022 Lunch Menu
