World Book Day Costumes

1 Mar 2022

We have received a higher demand than anticipated for the school to provide World Book Day costumes in years 4 and 5. We wondered if any families have spare costumes the school could borrow as it would be lovely for children in all year groups to be able to take part.

We are seeking costumes to fit ages 8 – 10 and these should be named and dropped at the school office at your earliest convenience.

Ideally we would like these to be given to the school on Tuesday or Wednesday.

If you haven’t opened it yet, do grab a cup of tea and have a look now.

The Quill

5 Feb 2022

Parents and Carers should have received our newsletter The Quill on Friday evening.
We did have a few technical issues and are delighted how our school staff pulled together, as always, to ensure it was sent out.
Parents/Carers who have been with us for a while will remember The Quill and we are delighted to be able to bring it back.
We aim to send this out each Friday during term-time.

If you have not received your copy to the email address we have on record for you, do let the School Office know the email address it should be sent to – [email protected] and we will update our records. Do check ‘Junk’ boxes incase it has gone there by mistake.
