School Dinners

On Monday this week, the Office had to put in 42 school dinners where parents had forgotten to book them.  Please can you remember to book your child’s school dinner to avoid upset.


Summer Fair

We are looking forward to seeing you all at our Summer Fair this afternoon.  It’s going to be a hot one!  Please make sure you have hats, sun cream and money!  Please be advised that there is no parking at the Upper School site.  Please park considerately in the neighbouring roads before walking to the School.


Athlete Pierre Henry Fontaine

The children had a hard work out with Pierre on Thursday!  They found the height of him compared to Mrs Mace very funny!  Thank you so much for all those who were sponsored for this event - some raising over £100!  We raised in total £1235.26l!

Penalty Notice reminder

Please can we draw your attention to familiarise yourself of our Penalty Notice information.  The full document can be found on our website, but a reminder is below:

“Should you take your child out of school without authorisation for five or more days, they will be liable to receive penalty notices.  Currently, the amount payable under a penalty notice is £60.00 if paid within 21 days, rising to £120.00 if paid within 21-28 days.  If the penalty notice is not paid within 28 days, the Local Authority will consider a prosecution in the Magistrates Court.  Please note that Penalty Notices are issued per parent/carer per child, so a family with two parents/carers and two children will receive four penalty notices”.


The Word of the Week was

Upper School           earnest     -        ‘showing sincere and intense conviction’

Lower School            wailed       -        ‘crying loudly’


Riddle of the Week for pupils (last week’s answer: envelope)
