Dear Parents/Carers,


Rights of the child : November - Article 19

Right to be safe


It's lovely to welcome the children back to school for yet a busy half term. The INTOFILM cinema visit for Reception to Y6 was an enjoyable experience for the children and we are very grateful to have received FREE tickets. 

Rhyme Time

Our baby and toddler Rhyme time class led by Ms Smith was very successful and enjoyed by parents and their babies. It was wonderful to welcome them into school and show off our new library. Please see the photographs below.  Rhyme time will run every Thursday 10.15am until 14th December 2023.
