Posted: Tuesday 1st April: DAFFODIL TEA AND 'COME AND SEE' REMINDER!!
Just a reminder for the children to bring in their cakes tomorrow for the daffodil tea. If there are any parents free to help with setting up and serving from 2.30-4.00 it would be greatly appreciated. The Daffodil Tea will commence at 3pm in the school hall. Tea and cakes will be served by Year 6. Then at 3:30pm you are all invited to 'Come and See' the children's classrooms to celebrate their work on display. We look forward to seeing you!
Posted: Tuesday 1st April: TRIP TO WW1 BATTELFIELDS REMINDER!!
As part of the centenary events for the Great War we are organising a visit by Year 5 and Year 6 (2014/15) children to the Belgian battlefields, memorials and war cemeteries. A letter was sent to all those parents who will have Year 5 or 6 children but unfortunately we have not had many replies. The accommodation and crossings will be booked before the Easter break so please could we ask you return your response by the end of the week. The attached letter provides details of the trip and includes the parental expression of interest form. Thank you!
Posted: Tuesday 1st April: CLUBS

Posted: Tuesday 1st April: BAGS 2 SCHOOL RETURNS
On Thursday the children will be bringing home a blue bag from school. This is your opportunity to get rid of old clothes, toys, bags etc. Just fill the bag and return it to school for collection on May 1st. The school is then paid per weight of materials received. Previously we have received £300 for a single collection so it's an easy way to raise money for the school and have a clear out at home. More information about Bags2School can be found here.
Posted: Friday 7th March: EXTREME READING COMPETITION!
I am challenging all staff and all of your children to send in a photo of themselves reading – I am looking for the most obscure and entertaining place that the pupils and staff can be caught reading and will then create a display of the photos that are sent in – you can either email me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) or send in a hard copy.
(You can see more of our amazing school and work in the 'Picture Galleries' link of the left.)
Our last OfSTED inspection was in March 2011.
The OfSTED report stated that we are 'good school', we have 'high standards of behaviour' and commended us on our 'caring family atmosphere'. The report also stated 'children make a good start in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They enter Year 1 with better than expected levels of attainment. In Years 1 to 6, this good start is fostered well by generally good levels of teaching so that by the time they leave, pupils' attainment is above average and their progress is good.'
No wonder we are so proud of our school!
