British Heart Foundation

We are so proud of the year 6 children who planned and organised the cake sale for the British Heart Foundation.  The children involved took control of every aspect of the organisation, with no help or intervention from any adults around the school at all.  The event was well organised, publicised and carried out with flair and and creativity.  It's great to know we have such enterprising children in our school.

The sale raised £147.94.

Holiday requests

Under new guidelines from the government, requests for time away from school for holiday during term time cannot be authorised even if a child has an excellent attendance record.  It is only in exceptional circumstances that time off can be authorised - a death or a funeral for example.

If you are asking for time away from school during term time you will need to talk to our attendance office, Tom Buckmaster, who can be contacted through the school office.

After School Clubs

We are currently setting up the after school clubs for this half term.  They will commence from week beginning 20th January and run to Friday 4th April.

Letters with more information will be sent out shortly.

Terrifying sighting for Year 1 and Year 5

Children in Year 1 and Year 5 are investigating the damage caused by a dragon! The year 5 children have possession of a cracked dragon egg and 3 red scales and the Year 1 children are investigating a castle, owned by a princess which has been burnt to the ground and the brave princess escaped by climbing down the ivy and rowing across the moat.
Further sightings have happened on school grounds!
Please report any further dragon sightings to Year 1 or Year 5. Thank you. Remain on guard, the Year 5 children have found bones!
