Headteacher’s Comments

Another half term has flown past.  Thank you for your help to make another memorable half term.  Enjoy your week off next week and enjoy the Diamond Jubilee Celebrations.  As the BBC is announcing it’s 60 years in the making.


Well done to Theo Harris who received a Green Card for helping Miss Gibbs.  Well done to Harriet Waterlow, Reece Clarke, Kirena Nolan, Jemma Johnson and Louis Chillingworth for being very responsible.  Well done to Evie Moss, Katie Square, Tiffany, Gill, Aaron Jones, Charlie Hiscott, Paris Colgate, Sophie Square and Maya Sweeney-Fenton for the effort they put into their maths work.  Well done to Amber Louise Giddy and Daisy Deluca for the effort they put into their maths work.  Well done everyone!

First Day Back

Our first day back after half term is Monday 11 June starting at 8:45am.

Swearing and aggressive behaviour

I have written before asking for your co-operation to block your children from hearing swearing.  Over the past week a couple of parents have been shouting and swearing and demonstrating aggressive behaviour.  This is totally unacceptable.  If you have a concern you should come and make an appointment with the school office to meet with a member of staff.

Governor Questionnaire

The Governors have now had an opportunity to look through the completed questionnaires.  They were very pleased with the responses and will be writing to you after the half term with feedback.


Well done to Mrs Chapman’s Class who had the best attendance for the second week running.  Well done to Mert Ahmet, Tim Akpuda, Elpseth Allen, Bern Brooks, Raymond Bull, William Dudley, Theo Harris, Kerys Page, Reggie Pegrum, Michael Phipps, Melody Ramanah, Jake Ryan, Caelie Southam and Reece Valance who all have 100% attendance.

We’re having a baby!

Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Pughsley who are expecting their first baby in December.
