Dear Parents and Carers,


Well done Year 6!

We are so proud of every single year 6 child. They were amazing performing at the Belgrade Theatre this week. All their hard work, perseverance, focus and determination paid off. They truly were outstanding!! Well done all. Thank you to the adults who worked so hard to ensure it was a successful event. Mr Morrow, Mrs R Morris, Miss Kealey, Miss Daniels, Mr Delaney and Mr Pahal. Thank you to Mr Burns who joined them to help on the night and to all staff who came to support.


Christmas Tree!

Mr Ascroft and some selected children went to collect a huge Christmas tree on Wednesday. It is even bigger and better than last years! We had a magical turning on of the lights today!



We have welcomed several visitors this week who have all commented on their exceptional behaviour and wonderful experiences offered to the children. We are incredibly proud of our school community and the way in which we work, reflect and celebrate together.



  1. A reminder to ensure children have coats (gloves and hats if required) as the weather gets colder
  2. Please continue to support your children by hearing them read and signing Boom reader four times a week. This makes a huge difference to their progress
  3. SEND coffee morning is Wednesday 6th December, please feel free to drop in for a chat.
  4. Previously worn uniform is available on Thursdays from 3pm in main office. Do pop along.


Heads up for some Christmas dates to be aware of:
