Let your light shine through family, friendship and faith


Remembrance Day

Thank you to all parents and grandparents who came to the War Memorial this morning to take part in our Remembrance Service. As ever, the children behaved beautifully and we were immensely proud of how well they carried out their laying of their class wreath, and standing quietly during the two-minute silence. They did so well!


Thank You for the Hamper Donations

Thank you to everyone for the hamper donations, we are extremely grateful. I know times are hard, so a big thank you from us all.


Open Morning

We are holding a whole school open morning tomorrow 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.

Starting on Monday, for those children who attend breakfast club in the hall, please drop your child off at the main school door. Thank you.

A polite reminder that children can be dropped off in the main school between 8.45 am and 8.55 am.

From Monday, the gate will be opened at 8.40am and will shut just after last drop off time at 8.55am.
