PTA 100 Club

Thank you to everyone who supported the PTA & FOSS 100 Club in January. The winning numbers in the draw were 21 (£3), 30 (£6) and 7 (£12). There is still time to purchase numbers for the February draw through ParentPay before the deadline of 20th Feb.

School Closed - Friday 10th Feb - Training Day

Don’t forget that school breaks up for half term on Thursday 9th February, as the following day is a training day for staff.


As you know, it is really important that all children attend school on time every day. Research shows that missing minutes of school accumulates and equates to significant loss of learning. Our current school attendance is 92% which is notably below the national average (94%) and our school target (96%), and we would really like this to improve next half term.

Video Games.

We know that a number of our children like to play video games. Did you know that there is a really good website that allows parents to view a game so they know about the content? It also suggests good, age-appropriate alternatives to games that children may be too young for. This can be found at
