Christmas Fair Fun

November 28, 2015

Well done everyone on another fantastic Christmas Fair! It was a fun afternoon and a good way to kick start the festive season. The afternoon raised a fantastic £1900 which will go towards building a path to the outdoor classroom and climbing equipment so they can be used in all weather.

Many thanks to everyone for their kind and extremely generous donations and thank you also to all the parents and staff who volunteered to help run the event and make it so special and such a success.

Thank you for your continued support.

Winter Clothing/Bad Weather

November 20, 2015

As the forecast is predicting colder weather, please ensure your child comes to school with a warm coat, hat and gloves. We do try to get the children outside at break and lunchtime even if it is cold as it is important they get fresh air and exercise during the school day. Please also ensure they have appropriate footwear and that all items are clearly labelled. Thank you.

In the event of extreme bad weather, making it necessary to close the school, you will be informed via:

  • A text message (ensure we have your up to date details)
  • Announcements on BBC 3 Counties Radio 103.8 FM or Heart 97.6
