Hello everyone!

Thank you to everyone who supported our spotty day for Children in Need. Everyone looked great all ‘spotted up’ and we raised loads of money for children in need here in the UK.

We hope you enjoy our bumper newsletter—it has certainly been a very busy half term so far with more to come!

Have a great weekend everyone.                                        

Sue Simmons, Headteacher.


The Business Tycoon Project started early last half term, with a group of Year 6 children having to produce business plans and submit them online for approval of £10.00 loans. All the children were successful and last week they were granted the money to setup their business. This week we have started trading! Already each team has made a profit! Take a look at just how organised and inventive the children have been.


Phonics Parent Workshop

Thank you to all the parents from Reception and Year 1 who attended our first Phonics Workshop. It was lovely to see so many parents getting involved with their children’s learning. Keep checking your children’s diaries for further workshops.
