The Be Bright Be Seen flyer has been displayed in all classes and used as a discussion point in class. This year there is an art competition for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.  It is hoped that parents and guardians will work with their children and this will help to ensure that they are considering the issue of visibility as the nights draw in.  Class teachers have been asked to send a photo of the winning entry which should be bright AND reflective to by Friday 15th November. The winners will receive prizes!

Bagels, bagels, bagels!

The National School Breakfast Programme

I am delighted to share the news that our school has joined the government’s National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), which is being delivered by the charities ‘Family Action and Magic Breakfast’.

As a NSBP School we are pleased to offer a healthy school breakfast, available to all, and enjoy the benefits that brings, with children settled and ready to learn at the start of the school day. Bagels will be available on the infant and junior playground between 8.40 and 8.45 each morning.


Our Ready Steady Read Book Fair is up and running.  Thank you to all parents who attended our Ready, Steady, Read Book Fair yesterday, we raised £164.80, which is great. We only have £435.20 to raise before we reach our target of £600. You are still able to order books through the school, if you were unable to attend yesterday. Thanks for your continued support!
