Empowering and nurturing young minds to achieve excellence


News Bulletin May

 Dear Parents,


The children in Year 6 and Year 2 have been busy sitting their statutory Government tests this week. Y1 will also have their Phonics Screening Test and Y4 will have their Maths test soon. The children have worked hard through the year, and should feel proud of their efforts, we are definitely proud of them!

        We are nearly half way through this Summer term, and as always there is a lot happening. Please check the diary dates, and we will look forward to seeing you all in school at some point soon.

        Please also remember we are to help, so come and talk to us if you have any concerns, questions or ideas that may help us.

With regards,

Ms Gita

Non-Uniform Day 

Syria/Turkey Appeal

Devastating earthquakes have struck the people in Turkey and Syria. Hundreds of buildings have been destroyed. Survivors are facing freezing conditions and need urgent aid.  We will be holding a non-uniform day on Friday, 26th May, so that we can donate the funds raised to Red Cross.  Children can wear their casual clothes and bring £1.00 if they wish.

Parent Questionnaire


Thank you, to all of you who responded to our questionnaire. Your feedback is very important to us, as it helps us to make positive changes where we can.

We are looking in particular at our Nursery offer, and can see that more families now have both parents working.
