We apologize for the difficulties that parents have had, but the school will be open tomorrow (15.05.2013) as normal as will the pre-school and the before and after school clubs. We thank you for your patience.

School closure : 14th May 2013.

The school will be closing today at 1pm, due to a burst water main under the school.  This needs 1/2 day to be repaired and whilst this happens there will be no water facilities available for toileting, washing or drinking.  Can all parents collect pupils from 1pm onwards.  We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Jubilee Day Celebrations – Thursday 31st May
Today we have held our Jubilee celebrations. All the children took part in a street party and enjoyed great food provided by the school, County Catering and TVFF! The costumes were amazing.  For a first hand account please scroll down to the bottom of this page to see Duncan Syner’s report of the day.

Friday 23rd March
This was Sports Relief day at school when the children could come dressed in sports clothes for a donation to Sports Relief.  A special mention goes to Sam Woodward for his 2 hour ‘drumathon’ to raise money for Sports Relief.


See below what happened when some hens visited Reception children as part of their learning around ‘The Little Red Hen’ story.


Touch FM’s Mark O’Sullivan and Paul Shuttleworth came in to meet the dinner ladies and share lunchtime activities with the children at the end of February.  To see the video they made, please follow the link

For your information, the newsletters which are sent out every Thursday are now being posted onto the school website
