Book Fair

Thank you to everyone who supported this year's school book fair. We managed to sell lots of books and we have received £442 in commission to spend on books for school. Well done everyone!

Erin (Reception)

Adverse Weather

Information regarding procedures should the school be closed as a result of adverse weather can be found here.


Reading Books

As you may have noticed, the children have not been bringing their school reading books home. This is because we are in the process of organising our book bands to ensure your child has a book suited fully for their needs.

Children will be given new reading books after the school holiday and, until then, we would encourage them to read any book which interests them and to enjoy a well-earned break!
