Where possible the dates coincide with the Infant School’s dates.  However, we are two separate schools and each school has its own need so it is not always possible to co-ordinate INSET days.

Last day of Half Term

Our last day this half term is Friday 10 February


Well done to Jamel Johnson Trent, Amber-Louise Giddy, Stanley Long, Tylah Cox and Jack Hammond for getting green cards for their work.  Well done to Manpreet Tak who showed a caring attitude towards another child in her class.  Congratulations to Sophie Square and Raymond Bull, who worked very hard in writing booster lessons.  Well done too to Caitlin Stergess-Hall for fantastic written work in class.  Well done to Albie Paris who put a lot of effort into his science work on Wednesday.  Well done to our quiz team (Aaron Jones, Holly Morris, Eden Ramsey and Cody Cassar) who came third in the inter-schools quiz competition.  Deven Stenning received a Green Card for showing good characteristics in class.  Well done everyone!


Well done to Mrs Sach’s class who had a perfect 100% attendance last week.
