Headteacher’s Comments

Welcome back! We are now in the second half of the school year.  Well done to the PTA who ran yet another successful event.  The Valentine’s Disco raised over £400 for the school.  All this money is being used to help improve the facilities in the playground.  A special thank you to Mrs Schooling who made the cupcakes which each child received at the end of the disco.


Well done to Teiye Richards for showing a caring attitude towards a child in his class who hurt himself as he was coming into school.  Well done to Amy Hamilton, Natalia Zolowitz, Jessica Crompton, Sian Coleman-Adu, Manpreet Tak and Shanice Lolomari for the extra effort in their homework.  Well done to Michael Wan and Daisy Jones for receiving Green Cards this week.  Well done to Shanice Lolomari, Oliver Katz, Sian Coleman-Adu and Melody Ramanah for receiving Green Cards for doing consistently well in their spellings.  Well done too to Lacey Howard, Zeeshan Hussain and Albie Paris who received Green Cards this week.  Well done to Sian Coleman-Adu, Danny Gill, Rebecca Bright, Jessica Crompton, Manpreet Tak, Bisma Zubairi and Daniella Lanza who received a Green Card for great homework or reading journals.  Well done to everyone!


Well done to Miss Smith’s class who had the best attendance last week and won Percy.
