Headteacher’s Comments

I have been speaking a lot recently about keeping your child safe whilst using the internet and other technologies.  This week’s ‘homework’ is to activate parental controls on your internet browser so that your child is not exposed to anything beyond their years whilst searching the internet.


Well done to Leah Hunn, Kirena Nolan, Mia Taylor, Evie Moss, Albert Paris,  Lewis Vowles, Reece Clark, Jemma Johnson, Tiffany Gill, Maya Sweeney-Fenton, Aaron Jones, Jessica Okaka, Sophie Square, Katie Square, Ella Forster,  (Mrs Westney’s/ Ms Cromwell’s Class), Cameron Straughan, Hermione Scott, Alesha Wade (Mrs Sach’s Class), Jamie Soteriou, Charlie Spillett, Kanya Coleman-Adu, Erin Rumens, Rebecca Hamilton (Miss Biggs’s Class) who received Green Cards this wseek.


Well done to Miss Wood’s class who had the best attendance this week.  Jay Foster received Percy for sustained effort with his learning this week.

Club Español (13 May)

The dates for Spanish Club this term are Monday 13 May, 20 May, 3 June, 10 June and 17 June.  Mrs May runs Spanish Club every Monday morning starting 8:15am.  There is no cost for this club.

Year 6 SATs (13 May- 16 May)

I would like to wish all of Year 6 the best of luck next week with their SATs.  Please make sure your child has plenty of rest, early nights and has breakfast in the morning.  Please also make sure your child brings in a water bottle.

National Sports Week (24-28 June)

During the week beginning 24 June, it is National Sports week.  Miss Gibbs is trying to organise sports coaches to come in during one afternoon that week so that the children can experience as many different sports as possible.


If you are a sports coach or know of someone who is and are available during that week to come in and teach and train the children, please return the slip at the bottom of the page.
