Dear Parents / Carers,

This week we have been treated to class assemblies from Year 2 and Year 6. It is always great to see the children sharing their learning so proudly and it is good for the children to have an audience for their work as it increases their pride in themselves and gives the younger children something to aspire to. Thank you to those parents who have enjoyed coming to see the assemblies this week.

We have recently streamlined our school rules so that they are memorable to even the youngest children. Our rules are 'Ready, Respectful and Safe' - just 3 words but words that cover most eventualities! Please take some time to discuss these with your children.

Have a lovely weekend,

Mrs Karen Williams

Head Teacher

Winning Team

Well done to the Green Gladiators for their win this week. Bradley and Evie were proud of their team.

KS1 Jacket Potatoes

We are offering pre-ordered only jacket potatoes (with cheese or beans) to Y1 and Y2 for the half term after Easter as a trial run. These must be pre-ordered for the whole of the half term. Please look out for the order form in your children's book bags next week which needs to be completed and returned by Tuesday 30th April. Thank you.


Reminder that anything unnamed in lost property when we break up next week will either be taken to the local charity shop over Easter or sent to the bag2school. Please encourage your children to have a look if you don't get the chance to.


The next collection for this is Thursday 2nd May 2019. Bags will come home before we break up so you have the chance to have a clear out and fill them over the Easter Holiday!

*please help * Volunteers required Fri 26th, Sat 27th and Sun 28th April

Hello lovely volunteers :-)

Our very exciting playground overhaul is starting this Saturday (thank you if you are helping with that bit). The next phase will be the rebuild, taking place during the Easter Holidays, so that the children come back to a fab, exciting new outdoor environment to enjoy. Can you help? Or can you volunteer anyone else to help out? ;-)

We need to get some names on our list as there is an awful lot to do (ask Michelle if you'd like more details; there may even be a moodboard going up in school this week!)

So please, if you can help, let us know ASAP! We need a good idea of numbers in advance so that we can organise tools and maybe even refreshments....

Hope to hear from you soon
