Value: Peace


We had a wonderful day with Boxing Champion Kerry Davies. She put the children and staff through their paces. So far the children have raised £562.15 for new play time equipment.

Armistice Assembly



To celebrate the 100 year remembrance our Year 6 children led us through a very moving assembly. They sang ‘Silent Night’ in German as well as English. All the children laid their Poppies around the flag pole and Mr Shaw, one of the Year 6 teachers played the ‘Last Post’. This was a very fitting tribute.

Reading Challenge Prize Winners

Following our ‘We’re All Going On A Summer Holiday’ and ‘Get Caught Reading’ summer challenges, we are delighted to announce the winners. For each competition, a £10 National Book Token was awarded during Thursday’s collective worship. All entries are winners in our eyes and as such have received house point awards from their teachers.

Our ‘Get Caught Reading’ picture competition was won by the Clingan family for their aeroplane cockpit photographs. Their pictures, along with all other entries, are on display in our school library.

All entries for our ‘We’re All Going On A Summer Holiday’ challenge were entered into a hat and the winner was drawn by our Open The Book Team. We are delighted to announce that Cassidy Wrightson was successfully selected.

Thank you for all your entries and your support with the competition.

New Sports Equipment


The equipment pack was awarded to our school following our successful application for last year’s Premier League Primary Stars Kit and Equipment Scheme. The scheme is part of the Premier League Primary Stars education programme which uses the appeal of Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children at primary schools across England and Wales the opportunity to learn, be active and develop important life skills.

A huge thank you must go to the parents that highlighted a potential benefit from Premier League Primary Stars kit and equipment scheme.

As a result, we have been buoyed at the start of the new term, with the delivery of a free Premier League Primary Stars equipment pack. Stocked full of items including Nike match footballs, training bibs and numbered and lettered floor markers, the Premier League equipment pack will aid teacher delivery of active lessons across the curriculum.

A reminder of PTC – Parents and Teacher Committee

This year we are opening our PTC to all parents throughout the school. Previously it was open to the parents of Reception classes only to help them make friends and become part of the school committee. I have had so many requests where parents would like to become involved with the school in some capacity. On Monday 19th November at 6.00pm-7.00pm at school we will be holding a special enrolment evening. If you have some time to give then please come along and enrol and put yourself forward to manage and suggest events. There will be a crèche available.
