Dear Parents/Carers,

Well done to Year 5 for completing their Cycling Proficiency over the last two weeks. You have all done so well and we are very proud of you! Also, well done to our footballers for taking part in their match this week. Thank you also to all the Parents/Carers who were able to support this event.

NSPCC Number Day – Friday 2nd Feb

Pupils and staff are invited to wear number-themed clothes to school on Friday to mark NSPCC Number Day.  We will be collecting donations on the gate for the charity and enjoying number-themed activities during the day.

PTA News

The first PTA cake sale of 2024 will be taking place at 3.30pm next Friday, 2nd February 2024. Years 2 and 5 will be bringing home paper plates and please can these year groups kindly bring in homemade or shop bought (nut-free) cakes on the day of sale? There will be stalls at both the main school entrance and in the infant playground. All funds raised will go towards painting new sports markings in the playground.


PTA AGM Monday 29th January

The PTA AGM will take place on Monday 29th January in the upper school (KS2) staff room at 3.30pm.  Please come via the main office and a member of staff will bring you over to the meeting. The PTA are looking to appoint a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer.  If any parent/carer would like to put themselves forward for these roles (or to share them with another parent/carer), the PTA would love to hear from you.  Please email them on or speak to one of the PTA members. 


Lost Property

We have added yet more photos to the lost property on the school web site, so please check if your child has lost something.  Contact the school if you recognise anything, and please can we remind parents/carers to label clothes and any other items with their child’s name.  Thank you very much.
