Sports Day 2023 

Sports Day last Friday was a great success, well done to all the children in Years 1 - 6 for their enthusiasm and sportsmanship. It was great to see so much enjoyment - including from the teachers in their closely fought egg and spoon race and from friends and family in the parents race!

The winner of Y 1, 2 and 3 was the blue team and for Y4, 5 and 6 it was the green team! 


We are currently looking for people to join our cleaning and Lunchtime Supervisor Teams. Both roles are currently temporary but there may be the posibility of a more permanent position in the future. 

If you are interested in either of these roles, please contact Miss Morse in the school office for further details 

New School Year Mass 

To welcome us back to the new school year, we will be hosting a Whole School Mass at the Church of Christ the King on Thursday 28th September. 

The Mass will begin at 2pm so we recommend arriving slightly before this to be seated. 

We hope all our families will be able to join us for this celebration of what we are sure will be a fantastic year ahead. 

School Meals Pricing

Please be aware that as of Monday 25th September, our school meals will be priced at £2.70 per day.

If you have any concerns around this, please do not hesitate to speak with us and we will do what we can to support you. 

If you believe your child may be entitled to free school meals, please visit to apply. 

Year 3/4 Barton Camp 

Years 3 and 4 went off to Barton Camp this week for an exciting night away. 

The children had a brilliant time, and were so well behaved - they were all an absolute credit to our school.

We're sure they'll have lots of exciting stories to tell when they return later today - we look forward to welcoming them back to school on Monday and wish them all (and our adventurous staff) a very restful weekend!

Weekly Attendance Winners

A huge well done to Year 4, who have achieved 99% attendance this week! This is a fantastic achievement and as a reward they will receive a non-uniform day next week. Mr Prichard will be in touch to let you know which day this will take place. 

We would also like to say well done to Years 3 & 5 who have both achieved at least 98% attendance across the week - keep up the amazing work and you may get your own non-uniform day! 

Keep up the good work

We have had a fantastic start to the school year with attendance, and this week, every single class has achieved at least 90% attendance. We'd like to see this figure rising each week, so please remember to make sure children are in school, on time, every day.
