Naming school items

Please can we ask that you take the opportunity over the weekend to name your child’s lunchbox and any other uniform item that comes into school.  This helps staff to ensure anything that is misplaced is returned to their right home.  Thank you. 


School Clubs

Thank you to all those who have returned their club forms.  Most clubs will start next week but please check the timetable for individual start and end dates/times.  Unfortunately, drama club was oversubscribed and parents of those children who were unsuccessful have been contacted, we will ensure those children are put forward for the club next term. 



All of our fabulous Teaching Assistants were nominated by the teachers for all of their hard work they do with the pupils for National Teaching Assistant Day.  Mrs Howe and Mrs Larkman were lucky enough to be presented with flowers from a local agency.


Macmillan Coffee

Thank you to everyone who has supported our events today.  We will let you know next week how much your generosity has raised.

Families magazine

Please find the link to your local Families Magazine below.  This resource aims to provide you with local news and information, health and education advice for families of children from 0 – 12 years old.  It is a great medium for you to find out about local clubs, classes and other family related businesses; keeping you up to date with what is available in the area. The ‘What’s On’ section is extremely useful, especially during half term and holidays!


The Word of the Week was

Infants       -         irked – ‘to annoy someone or be annoyed by something or someone’

Juniors        -        candour – ‘to be open, honest and frank’


Riddle of the Week for pupils (last answer: Post Office)

What has to be broken before you can use it?
