Arts Week (Science Theme):

Monday 25th June to Friday 29th June

This year our Arts Week has a science theme. We are very much basing the week on the environment and particularly on the impact that plastics have. One of our challenges is to construct a greenhouse from plastic bottles. We will be using the green house in conjunction with the gardening club where the children grow a variety of vegetables and flowers. Does anybody have a greenhouse structure that is no longer used and would like to donate it to School (Structure only please).We are asking the children and yourselves to start collecting the clear 2L bottles and bringing them into school from Monday 4th June. Two large collection bins will be placed by the main entrance gates.


We now have almost every parents email address and will be sending most of our communications this way. The newsletters will go out as and when they are needed. Teachers are informing parents regularly through the class website page. Please check your child’s class webpage for information, pictures, dates and achievements.

Children’s published poetry books

We are still selling the children’s own poetry books at the main office for £5 each


After school clubs will start from 23rd April.



Please note that the bottom pedestrian gate will be locked until 10.00am and then again from 2.30pm. This is to encourage those parents who are still not doing so, not to drive down or park in Rope walk during the peak times. Whilst this may be an inconvenience to some parents, the safety of the children comes first. A reminder that parking permits for Cascades car park are free from the school office.
