'The Big Tidy Up'

Last Friday we had a good turnout for our 'Big Tidy Up!' Pupils, ex-pupils, parents, grandparents, staff and governors all volunteered to collect litter from around the school.  This was part of our eco schools initiative to Keep Britain Tidy and to support the 'Love Where You Live' campaign.  The afternoon started with everyone being issued with a tabard to promote the purpose and spirits were high due to the weather being in their favour.  Unfortunately this was too good to be true and the heavens opened!  Everyone pulled together and the afternoon was a great success.  The school did not have too much litter lying around which was highly commendable.

Thank you to all those people who gave up their time, it is greatly appreciated.

New Chapters!

This is a brand new school year and we have lots of new and exciting things to look forward to this year. There's British Food Week, University, Children In Need, Harvest Festival, Open Days and our spectacular firework display and b-b-q. There is so much more but we will let you know nearer the time as there are too many to mention.

We would like to welcome our Reception children and parents to our school. The children have settled in really well and are learning their new routines and accepting their new challenges with enthusiasm.

We would also like to welcome Mr Pennington, the new year 3 teacher, to our school.
