Dear Parents/Carers,


Children in Need

We have finished the week with some real magic and sparkle as we took to the dance floor, hall, and playground to strut some strictly dance moves!! Big thank you to you all for making such a fab effort with costumes, and for your generous donations. The total raised was £410!!!  A big thank you also to Mrs Zoe Gamble for taking the children (and staff) through their paces as we danced through the day. An amazing day of high spirits and fun for such a worthy cause.


Anti-bullying Week

Children have been doing some fab work around anti-bullying and friendships this week. Thank you for embracing this important topic with your children. Next Monday and Tuesday will include the rearranged workshops for KS2 using a virtual reality programme.


****Road Safety outside school****

We urge families to use the pavements outside school during drop-off and collection and not to walk in the road.  Although the road is closed to general traffic at certain times, local residents are exempt and may use the road during these times.  It is essential for your safety, therefore, that you do not walk on the road, even when there is no traffic.  It is also vital that children learn that the only safe place to walk is on the pavement, as most roads are busy and dangerous.  Thank you.



The PTA are holding a virtual raffle, where the winning prize is £25 cash towards your child’s school photo. Flyer attached with details!


The PTA’s AGM will be held on Monday 29th November via Zoom.  Joining details will be made available nearer the time.
