We have been so blessed with the weather over the last four weeks; let’s hope it continues into the school holidays! Sports day was an absolute scorcher and once again a great success at the Football Club. Unfortunately some races were not run, we will ensure these happen in school time. Yesterday the sports day results were announced…

It is difficult to believe we are nearing the May half term break. This academic year seems to have flown by and we are excited about lots of events planned for the final part of the term. A big focus for next half term will be transition: our Year 6 transitioning to secondary schools, new starters into Year R and each year group into their new class…

Well, what a surprise to see the Beast from the East returning! Thankfully not as disruptive as its first visit. Thank you to the parents who have returned the parent questionnaires.; your opinions are valued and results will be published as soon as the information has been collated. This term has flown by, it is hard to believe it is already Holy week and will be Easter this weekend. The staff and Governors wish you all a safe and restful Easter break…

We hope you managed to stay warm over the weekend. Although it was exciting to see the flutter of snow, we are pleased it didn’t settle and therefore effect day to day plans.
