Welcome to Nursery Event

On Wednesday 28th June at 1.15pm our nursery staff are holding an afternoon open event for our youngest and pre nursery children.  This will give parents/carers the opportunity to meet staff and see our wonderful nursery provision.

Our Year 6 leavers assembly (always a very emotional event) will be held in the school hall on Thursday July 20th at 9.30am where we celebrate and say farewell to our wonderful Year 6 pupils.  We welcome our families and carers of Year 6 children which I am sure will be a memorable occasion. Get the tissues ready!


Cycling to school

We encourage children to walk/cycle to school especially during the summer months.  Bicycles can be stored in the bicycle rack near the school exit gates. Remember children need to wear and helmet and to ride safely and exercise caution and respect for members of the public and their peers.


Baby Talk

Our new session of our Baby Talk classes commenced Wednesday 7th June and was very well attended.  We hope that parents and babies had a wonderful time as they got to know each other and enjoyed the expertise from Mrs. Lucy Waterman.  Please see our photos below.



We have surplus brand new uniform which we would like to recycle. Items of clothing will be left in boxes by the chillax - please feel free to help yourself.


Please note that as in my previous blog, we do not want children wearing the gymnastic shorter Nike Pro or similar makes, as part of their school uniform ,apart from P.E. Please take note!
