The Year 6 children led a very moving assembly this morning followed by every child laying their own poppies. The respect and reflection that each child from the youngest to the eldest demonstrated was truly inspiring.

We have some spare poppies if parents would also like to lay a poppy. Please can every effort be made to keep younger children off this special area. Thank you.

Our football team were victorious in the local schools tournament and will now face the winners of the Cheltenham schools tournament. Well done!
