Our Reception children, together with their teachers and teaching assistants, worked very hard to produce a brilliant Nativity play last week. Thank you to all the friends and families who came along to enjoy it, and well done to everyone who took part - you are all STARS!



On Friday we held a fund raising non-uniform day. Everyone was invited to wear a Christmas jumper or something Christmassy, and the school looked very festive! Here is a lovely photograph of Santa and his little helper from our 2 Year Old Unit. Thank you to everyone who took part, and helped us raise £185.19 for our school funds.

British Science Week

Congratulations to Mrs Dundon-Innis who has successfully applied for a grant to run an event during British Science Week. Look out for more information next term about the exciting activities that she will be organising. Well done Mrs Dundon-Innis, you are a STAR!


Holiday Time!

Our last day of school is Tuesday 20th December and we come back to school on Wednesday 4th January.

We wish all our families a very peaceful and enjoyable holiday.

Merry Christmas

and a

Happy New Year!



Santa has been visiting Arboretum to join in with the Christmas parties, and bring presents to our younger children. They were all very excited to see him. He also stopped in at the office to say hello to our hard-working office staff!



Last Wednesday was Christmas Dinner day, and the children enjoyed a delicious feast cooked by Nora and her team. Christmas crackers and party hats added to the festive atmosphere.

Thank you very much to Nora and her team for all the delicious meals they have cooked through the year.



There will be no clubs running on the first 3 days after the holidays. New clubs will start from Monday 9th January. Please collect a letter from Mr Malooq or outside the office to sign up for a club.

Remember, all clubs are FREE if your child is eligible for Pupil Premium - to find out if your child qualifies, please fill in a Free School Meals application form available from the Office.
