Headteacher’s Comments

Fingers crossed for nice weather on Monday so that our Sports Day can go ahead.  Next week is a busy week for the school: Sports Day, Open Evening and Transition Day.  I hope to meet as many of you as possible over the week.


Well done to Ella Dewing, Chloe-Mae Pautsch and Oliver Roberts (Mrs Watson’s Class), Millie-Jo Lanza (Mrs Raddon’s Class), Leah Hunn, Raymond Bull (Mrs Westney/ Ms Cromwell’s Class), Corey Marks, Chelsea Lawn and Ella Freeman (Mrs Sach’s Class), Thomas Draper (Miss Gibbs’s Class), Olivia Diss, Christopher Essl, Rianna Chambers, Jamie Soteriou, Daisy Jones, Kyri Neophytou, Charlie Spillett (Miss Biggs’s Class) who received Green Cards this week.


Well done to Miss Wood’s class who had the best attendance last week with a near perfect 99.1%.

Interim Deputy Headteacher

Over the next two weeks Ms Cromwell will be on secondment to another school as part of a BME Headship Internship Programme.  During these two weeks, Miss Lisa Gibbs will be the Interim Deputy Headteacher.

Sports’ Day (24 June/ Reserve 1 July)

This is a reminder that we are planning our Sports Day for Monday 24 June starting at 9am.   Your child has already been informed of the colour t-shirt they need to wear for Sports Day.  If they do not have that particular colour t-shirt, then they just wear their normal PE kit.  A copy of the team your child is in can be found in the notice board.


The PTA committee will be running a stall on the day selling Bacon and Sausage Rolls/ Teas/ Coffees/ Soft Drinks and Ice Poles.  Children will be able to purchase drinks at break time (11:00 to 11:20am).

Open Evening (Tuesday 25 June)

Our summer Open Evening is on Tues 25 June, between 5:30pm and 7:30pm.  This gives you the chance to look at some of your child’s work over the past year, have an informal chat with your child’s current teacher and to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher for next year. 


The PTA committee will be running a stall during the evening selling Teas/ Coffees/ Soft Drinks and Ice Poles and running an inflatable.

Transition Day

Next Friday is Transition Day where your child will spend the whole day with their new class teacher.
