Headteacher’s Comments

Well done to the Year 6 children for a very powerful Remembrance Assembly on Tuesday.  This year’s assembly was even more significant as we, as a nation, are commemorating 100 years since the start of the World War One and also commemorating 70 years since D-Day.  Thank you to all the children and adults who donated towards the Poppy Appeal.


Well done to Joshua Johnson, Mulkom Kisitu, Freddie Kiff (Miss Kent’s Class), Lennie Hyams, Alex Nespereira, Nathaniel Aderemi, Lillie Nelson, Ellie Howard, Darcy Kilcullen, Daisy Everett (Mrs Kaleel’s Class), Faith Parker, Lewis Frith, Kyla Gordon, Ryan Locke (Mrs Haslehurst’s Class) Raymond Bull, Harriet Waterlow (Miss O’Riordan’s Class) who received Green Cards this week.


Well done to Miss Bektas’s Class who had the best attendance this week with 100%.
