Thank You

July 21, 2017

A huge thank you to parents and carers on behalf of all the teaching and admin staff for all the lovely cards and gifts you have brought. We are extremely grateful and overwhelmed by all your kind words and also for the support you have given to the school over the past year.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our fantastic staff for their hard work and commitment over the past year.

Finally, I hope everyone has a very enjoyable and relaxing summer holiday and that the sun keeps on shining throughout August! I look forward to welcoming the children back to school on Monday 4th September.

Summer BBQ – Fri 22nd Sept

July 21, 2017

Put Friday, 22nd September in your diary – we’re having a summer BBQ from 7.30 – 10.30pm at the school and it will be a great opportunity to catch up after the holidays, meet new parents and get to know some of the other parents a bit better!

More details to follow, but in the meantime line up your babysitters and save the date for a fun night out!

Mrs Shackell

July 21, 2017

After 30 years working at our school, we say a very fond farewell to Mrs Shackell, our senior lunchtime supervisor, who is retiring. I’m sure I speak on behalf of all the children and staff in saying how much we will miss her. We wish her a very happy retirement.

In honour of Mrs Shackell, we have introduced the ‘Shackell Shield’, a new trophy to be given to a deserving pupil at the end of each term. It is a friendship award given to someone who has stood out as always showing kindness and support to their fellow pupils, not only amongst their classmates but throughout the whole school.

Mrs Shackell presented the shield in our celebration assembly today to Asma Abubakar in Year 4. Well done Asma – you are a credit to our school.

Year 5 Enterprise Day

July 20, 2017

Pupils in Year 5 have been creating their own businesses over the summer term. This culminated in the children selling their wares/services today and raising money for charity.

The exact totals are still being tallied up but they raised in excess of £125. After paying their investors and bankers, the remainder of the profit will be divided amongst the various chosen charities.

Year 6 Leavers Assembly

July 20, 2017

We held our leavers’ assembly this morning. I am sure our Year 6 parents and carers who attended will agree that it was an emotional and reflective time as well as being an uplifting celebration of the children’s progress from Reception to Year 6. In the afternoon after the leavers assembly, Year 6 enjoyed some fun time together at Westfield playground, enjoying each other’s company.

In our celebration assembly this morning, the following Year 6 pupils were presented with our annual trophies:

  • The Lea Sports Award: Joseph Caffery and Sarah Lovell
  • The Lea Citizenship Award: Eva Farruggia and Leo Milioto-Graves
  • The Bishop Award: Lexi Olton

We wish Year 6 the very best for the future as they move on to secondary school. We will miss you all.
