Reach for the Stars

Thank you to parents for working with their children on some exciting homework tasks over the holiday which have been shared with the school in WOW assemblies this week.


Year 5/6 Drop-ins

Year 5/6 will be holding Drop-in sessions for parents on Tuesday 27th September at 11.20am .  Please come along to find out about what your child will be learning, and how you can support them.

Thank you to everyone who donated food for our Harvest assembly



Please make sure that you take you child’s packed lunch box and water bottle home every night to wash.  Dirty, sticky packed lunch boxes attract ants.  Every other Friday the lunch trolleys will be emptied and anything left in them will be thrown away to avoid problems with pests.


Name labels

Please make sure that all your child’s uniform, PE kit, glasses and anything else that they bring to school has their name on it.  Then we can help to get it back to them if they lose it.
