13th July 2018

Hello everyone,

Well, we are nearing the last week of term and reports are being given out today.  We hope you enjoy reading all about the children’s hard work and successes this year.  We have parents’ evenings on Monday and Tuesday so don’t forget to book your appointment slot to avoid disappointment.

Thank you to everyone who came to see your children’s portfolios—the children chose the work and it took a long time for them to decide because they had done so much work this year.  We hope you enjoyed them as a memento of their year.  Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Sue Simmons, Headteacher.


We have raised £430.31 for Readathon! Well done to all the children who have participated in the sponsorship. A huge well done to the children in Barn Owl 5 who raised £209.00 for Readathon 

Eid Charity Collection

We have raised £313.78 for Blind Ambitions Charity thank you to all the parents for their donations.

WE Project

Please do not forget to send in your loose change to help buy a goat for less fortunate people in Kenya.  We have raised the total of £27.46  - this is not enough to buy a whole goat at the moment. The final day for donations is Wednesday 18th July.

Art Exhibition

Huge congratulations to our 40 winners who made it to the Hallfield Art Exhibition. The artwork that the children produce in school has really improved and it was so difficult selecting which children to attend. I would like the children to know that I am immensely proud of the work they have put in during art lessons and all their efforts. An extra special 'well done' needs to go out to our 4 prize winners - Ciaran C, Year 6; Ali S, Year 5; Saman T, Year 4 and Sufyan A, Year 3.
