Good morning everyone,
Well done to the KS1 children who represented the school at the Astrea Olympics.
Yesterday Louie and Jacob reached the 20th milestone on our Reading Challenge and chose a book from our reading reward shop.
I am thrilled to to tell you that our Year 1 children did fantastically in the Phonics Screen with 81% of them achieving the pass mark.
Tomorrow we will be joining Castle Academy at the KS2 Astrea Olympics.
If you have any suitable prizes for our summer fair raffle please leave them at the school office. Thank you
Have a good day.
It is the time of year when we review the work we have been doing to improve our school. Your views are much appreciated. Please let us know what you think by clicking on the link below. Thank you.
Yesterday we held our weekly School Council meeting. Read our notes below
Reminder- Water in bottles
Please remember that for drinks during the day the children should bring a water bottle with water in it. We do also have cups available if they forget.
Juice and squash is permitted at lunchtime if your child brings a packed lunch.
Don’t forget you can wear your PE Kit on PE days.
We have been encouraging all children to wear the correct PE kit over the next few weeks.
- Child to have a verbal warning the first time it is forgotten.
- A text will be sent home on the second time it is forgotten.
- A phone call home will happen on the third occasion (or speak to parents when they collect their child).
Please remember that children should not be wearing jewellery other than a watch and stud earrings. For PE these should be removed however if this is not possible we will supply the children with some tape to cover them up. This is for health and safety reasons.
White t shirt
Black shorts or plain jogging trousers (in case we go outdoors)
School jumper/ cardigan ( in case we go outdoors)
Socks (children will be asked to remove these when we have indoor PE)

We are launching Children’s University in the next few weeks. We will be taking part in this because we want children to
- Feel they have grown in confidence and self-belief
- Enjoy new experiences, in new places and want to keep exploring
- Believe they have a broader range of essential skills
- Feel empowered to make positive choices about their future
- See learning that is fun, aspirational and lifelong
