Dear Parents / Carers,


We have had a lovely week in school this week. Rev. Lucy led our worship on Wednesday around the theme of thankfulness, one of our school values that we have tried to keep in our minds over this strange time when it has not always been easy.


I have a few requests this week -

First, do you have any spare school clothes aged 4 -5 or 5-6 years that your child has grown out of and you are able to donate to school? Our spares in EYFS have dwindled and we desperately need some more especially trousers.

Next, are you planning a clear-out before Christmas? If you are, EYFS are currently in need of the following items:


  • Small wooden or plastic people
  • wooden dolls house furniture
  • small toy cars
  • number or alphabet puzzles or puzzles linked to children's stories

Thank you in advance for any of the above.


Finally, we are seeing a number of complaints related to parking at pick up and drop off times especially gates and drives being blocked on Laurels Farm Drive and Church Street. Please can I ask again that you are respectful of our neighbours and think about parking safely and considerately when collecting your children.


Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Karen Williams

Head Teacher

The winning class was Saturn and the class winners were:

Neptune - Robin Dorman

Uranus - Sam Bennet

The school winner was Lucie-Mae Wright with an amazing 30,000 right answers!

It is lovely for the pupils to have a greater understanding of this worthwhile charity and thank you for your support in helping raise £188 for WaterAid. We look forward to doing further work on this throughout the year.

Car Parking, Pick Up and Drop Off

Please can you remain respectful of local residents when dropping off and collecting children from school as there have been recent instances of driveways being blocked causing major issues.
