Let your light shine through family, friendship and faith


Welcome Back

Welcome back to everyone after our half term break. We are about to enter the busiest and most exciting time of the school year, and you will notice that a few new dates have been added to the diary information. These have been placed in bold and underlined. Please make a note of them and I will keep you up to date with any further dates as they occur.

Below you will find a bit more information about some of the events that are close to. As other dates come closer, you will be provided with additional information.



Discos are taking place next week. Please pay online for your child’s ticket. The price is £5 per child which includes a hot dog and a drink. Please drop and collect your child from the hall via the main entrance at the stated times.


Remembrance Service

Please join us at 10.45am at the War Memorial in the village on Friday 11th November. We look forward to seeing you there. Parents usually stand along the pavement, near to the hedge, this allows the children to gather closer to the memorial. Thank you.


Open Morning

We are holding a whole school open morning on Saturday 12th November 10.00am-12.00pm. If you know of any neighbours or friends who are interested in coming along, please pass on this information. Thank you.


Children in Need

Please send your child in non-uniform on Friday 18th November. We will gladly receive a donation from you to pass on to the Children in Need charity. Please send the donation into school with your child on the day.


Many thanks

Mrs Clarey and Team
