Dear Parents / Carers,

What another great week we have had in school! On Tuesday a group of children from Year 2 travelled to Brayton Primary to join in with a Bench Ball event alongside the other primary schools in the Trust. They had a super time and I have had nothing but praise about their conduct and kindness so well done to those children.

A few notices this week:

  • Parent Consultation evenings - These will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday next week. Please book an appointment if you haven't already.
  • Open Evening for new Reception Intake 2024 - There will be an open evening for parents of children applying to join our Reception Class in 2024 on Tuesday 14th November at 5:30pm. Please let the school office know if you would like to attend and please pass the details on to anyone you know who may have a child starting in Reception next year.
  • Finally, a reminder that all of our after school clubs are cancelled next week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday due to the Parent consultation evenings.

Have a lovely weekend,

Karen Williams

Message from Head Pupils

This week our year 2 class, Seacole, competed in a bench ball tournament at Brayton Primary School on Wednesday afternoon and did really well. Whilst there was no ranking, all the children who went showed fantastic sportsmanship. Also, on Wednesday we had a cake and book sale to raise funds for the school, which went down a treat! Have a lovely weekend.

Head Pupil Awards go to Heidi W and Mabel C.

Staff Thank You's

If anyone would like to say thank you to or has any positive comments for a member of staff then please complete and submit the form below.

Thank you to everyone who donated bakes/books and their time for Books & Bakes on Wednesday, we raised £158 and hopefully everyone enjoyed the cakes and got some good books. There will some additional books available at each parents evening for anyone that wasn’t able to attend.

Unfortunately, we did not have enough attendees to hold the AGM, so we have postponed this until after half term. In the hope of getting the 6 people we need to attend; we are hoping to hold this in the pub – if biscuits won’t temp you hopefully alcohol will. Again we will confirm this ASAP.


As ever, you can always set up EasyFundraising as an easy, free,
way to help raise funds for the school whilst you shop.
