Next week is Health and Fitness Week, when we will have lots of exciting and energetic activities for all the children to take part in. We hope that our families will also be able to come and join in for some of them. Come and join us for Tea and Toast, or our Family Picnic, and cheer your child along at their Sports Day! See below for more details about these activities.

Please note, outdoor activities will all be weather dependent, and will be cancelled if the weather is bad.


Come along and watch your child compete at different sporting activities:

Tuesday at 1.30pm - Reception

Wednesday at 9.30am - Classes 9, 10, 11, 12, 13

Please make sure that your child is wearing sunscreen and has a hat and water bottle.


We would like to invite all parents to join us for a picnic on the field on Wednesday 5th July at 12.10pm.

All children who have a school dinner will be provided with a school packed lunch.

Parents, please bring your own picnic, but remember that we are a NUT FREE school, so please check the labels, and don’t bring in anything with nuts or that says “may contain nuts”.



We will be having a Bouncy Castle Event on Friday 7th July, when we will have bouncy castles and other inflatable activities on the field. Every class from Reception upwards will have a chance to go out for a bounce.

Could we please ask for a contribution of 50p per child towards the cost of this event.
