MORNING ROUTINES –
In order to support working arrangements within the school ahead of the site opening each morning, gates into the courtyard and from Sandringham Road will now not be opened before 8.25am. For those early risers among you this may mean a slight change in routine so that you do not find yourselves waiting at the school gates. Many thanks for your support with this.

Well what a joy it has been to welcome children, and parents too, back to school this week. The atmosphere on Tuesday was bubbling with enthusiasm, eagerness and enjoyment and it was great for us to catch up with everyone and to see children doing the same. It genuinely felt like a community coming together again!
|SUMMER HOLIDAYS ARE ALMOST HERE – YIPPEE!
As we head off into the Summer holidays we would just like to thank you for all of the energy, enthusiasm, commitment and openness that you have brought to us this year. It has enabled us to have a fantastic year supporting and celebrating the learning that your children have shared with us. It’s a real privilege to work in a school so well supported by you all, parents and children – we all wish you a restful and sun-filled break!
Following a visit to school by children’s environmental author Ellie Jackson, our Year 6 children decided to set an example to others and wanted to pick up plastic rubbish from a local beach. We wrote to GWR who helped us get there for free. When we got there, we borrowed litter picking sticks from the Nature Reserve then ventured onto the beach. We found all sorts of plastic litter that had either been left by people enjoying a day out or other rubbish that had been washed up on the beach by the tide. Fishing nets, floats, plastic bottle and clothing were all found and collected by us. We brought it all back to school to use in a sculpture next week…
Many thanks to everyone who attended and enjoyed our Summer Disco – a super time was had by all who came along. Particular thanks go to those parents and school staff members who gave up their Friday evening in support of the event.
