Macmillan Coffee Afternoon

We raised money for Macmillan at school today, with non-uniform and cakes. Thank you to all the families who donated cakes and also attended our fund raising. We will share what we have raised as soon as we know. Think everyone now needs a lie down from all the yummy treats we have had. 

Worry Wizard Visit

Today our Wellbeing Team met the Worry Wizard herself - Amy Smythe. They ate biscuits, talked about their role in school and played a wellbeing game. Our champions have more assembly ideas and have some great support in place for our pupils Aoife's idea is to travel away from her worries on a Chicken Mayo Wrap - which made us all giggle. Thank you to Amy for her time with our pupils. 

Primary Science Quality Mark 2022

We have achieved our Primary Science and Quality Mark! Primary Science Quality Mark (PSQM) is the only national award scheme to develop and celebrate the quality of science teaching and learning in primary schools.

World Peace Day 2022

2022 Theme: End racism. Build peace.

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.

But achieving true peace entails much more than laying down arms.  It requires the building of societies where all members feel that they can flourish. It involves creating a world in which people are treated equally, regardless of their race.

Litter Pickers

We have our very own daily litter pickers. Our super year 4 class have taken to cleaning up the school grounds each lunchtime. This is led by Jakob, who is very passionate about his role and does his role with pride. Thank you litter pickers! 

PTFA Funds

Our PTFA fund raising has enabled us to improve EYFS outdoor areas. We have a new climbing frame and a new writing shed. Thank you everyone for your support! 

Our New House Captains

This year to encourage the highest standards of behaviour we have introduced House Teams - Amber, Ruby, Emerald and Sapphire. Our new year 6 Captains, will count the pupil's star awards each week and a trophy will be presented in assembly. At the end of each term the winning team receives a special treat. All the staff have also been allocated a team too. Good luck to all teams. Let's see who the first winner will be.
