Headteacher’s Comments

Well, we are now half way through the school year.  Well done to the 34 children who have been in school every day since September.  Thank you to everyone who has been in school this week, especially to those parents who have had to come a long way to get the children into school, despite the snow and ice.  I hope you all have a lovely week.  I am off to the city of love, Paris.  You never know I may find that special someone, ooh-la-la!


Well done to Reece Valance, Alesha Wade and Eden McCartney for super homework last week.  It was extremely neatly presented. Green cards were given to Veronica Bergamino, Taya Hunter, Tia Martin and Owen Brennan for hard work in writing booster class.  Kimberley Murray got a green card for donating some games for the games club.  Well done to Reggie Pegrum who received a Green Card for his excellent clay work.  Well done to Danny Ball, Reece Clark, Aaron Jones, Kirena Nolan, Jemma Johnson, Tylah Cox, Caitlin Stergess-Hall, Amber-Louise Giddy, Liberty Keeling and Jamel Johnson-Trent who all received Green Cards this week.


34 pupils have 100% since September.  Well done to Mert Ahmet, Tim Akpuda, Malcolm Alfred-Kamara, Elspeth Allen, Freya Blain, Toni Brancher, Ben Brooks, Raymond Bull, Ennice Dixon, Rhys Dolan, William Dudley, Victoria Fry, Theo Harris, Shanice Lolomari, Cole McFadyen, Holly Morris, Kyri Neophytou, Mia Opinel, Kerys Page, Reggie Pegrum, Lucy Phillips, Michael Phipps, Alfie Plowman, George Plowman, Melody Ramanah, Evie Rumens, Jake Ryan, Michael Skinner, Steven Skinner, Jessica Smith, Luke Spinks, Reece Vallance, Thomas Wilkinson and Bisma Zubairi.
