Homework Club

This is a reminder that there is no homework club next week.  Homework Club starts again on Tuesday 8 January.

Thank You Mrs Dean

Mrs Dean retired this week.  As a parting gift, Mrs Dean donated £100 towards the school.  I think it is a fitting tribute to Mrs Dean, who organised so many of the school’s plays, to put the donation towards the new stage lighting in the hall.  Thank you so much Mrs Dean!

New Stage Lighting in the Hall

Yesterday we had stage lighting permanently installed in the school hall.  These have been installed due to the very generous donation of the school’s PTA.  The PTA has worked extremely hard over the past year, raising over £6,000.  Well done to everyone who has worked so hard to raise the money and thank you to everyone who have supported the events.  I look forward to seeing the stage lighting in use for the school pantomime next week.

Help raise money whilst Christmas Shopping

Thank you to everyone who is registering with website.  We have currently raised £35.38.  Every time you access a shopping website through, the school receives a donation at no cost to you.  It is a great way to help our PTA raise money at this time of the year.  I shopped with Amazon, Ticketmaster and the for presents for my mum and dad and this created a donation.
