new . . . Paperclip challenge

We are running a challenge in school where pupils and staff are being encouraged to take part in an activity to develop their enterprising skills in order to help others. This involves “trading- up” a paper clip for something of greater value. Each class will engage in the challenge in a slightly different way and we are asking parents/carers and friends and family to support our challenge.

Look out on our social media pages to see our progress.

Woodland Walk

We are delighted with our new woodland walk and outdoor learning facilities, funded through the Tescos 'Bags of Help' local grant scheme raised from the 5p carrier bag levi, pupils are already making use of the forest school areas and enjoying the wildlife areas. We are excited to see the outdoor area develop over the seasons.
