Upcoming Events

Memorial Garden


We will be working on the Memorial Garden on Thursday 30th May from 10am to 3pm. We will be there come rain or shine! 

Please bring with you a pair of gardening gloves, drinks and some lunch. If you have a trowel or a small fork, it would be useful to bring this as well. 


We are looking forward to seeing as many people as possible on the day - many hands make light work!


Thank you for all your support.

Standardised Tests (SATS)


We would like to wish all our pupils in Years 1, 2 and 6 taking their tests in the next few weeks the best of luck!

Year 1 will be completing their Phonics assessments after the half term break.

Year 2 and Year 6 will be completing their End of Key Stage Assessments next week. They will then finish their writing tasks over the following weeks.

They have worked hard, and we are sure they will get the results that they deserve.


World Book Day - Thursday 7th March 2019

This year, the theme is 'Share a Story'. We are therefore asking children to dress, if they wish, as characters from stories they can retell.

If children have a copy of the book they are a character from, they can bring that with them too. 

We are asking for a £1 donation from children taking part in the day. 

I wonder who well see in school on that day?
