Dear Parents/carers,

I can’t believe another term is over already. We have been very busy and are now looking forward to the final term of the year.

Easter scene competition:

Thank you very much for all the fabulous entries for our Easter egg competition. It was so difficult to choose a winner from each class. There were amazing, imaginative ideas. Well done!

Easter Egg raffle:

Well done to all our winners! Thank you very much to everyone who donated an egg. They all went to make our raffle bigger and better.

Thank you also to SMASH for their special prize!

Tea-Time Club:

Our Tea-Time Club us getting more and more popular. Places fill up fast, so please book in advance.

To book your child’s place, call or email the school office. 

Mrs Wharton and Miss Hacking 

Reading Friends:

We are looking at starting Reading Friends back up in the coming summer term. If you or know anyone who would like to volunteer their Tuesday afternoons 1:15pm until 2:45pm, to come and read with a range children and help foster a love for reading then please register your interest. Training will be provided by Miss Byram and once we have an idea in numbers more information will follow. More details will follow on this.

After School Clubs:

For next term the ASC will be a Striking and fielding club for both KS1 and KS2.

Games and activities include:

cricket, rounders, tennis, scatter ball, long ball, football, cricket, football and rounders.

The Reception/KS1 club will take place on Wednesday and the KS2 club is on Friday. Please book via ParentPay. The cost for the half term is £18.


SMASH make a real difference to our school. They run activities that the children really love and raise important funds for our school which pay for special extra pieces of equipment! SMASH are looking for someone to take over. If you think you could be the right person, please get in touch to discuss what the role entails.

Free School Meals:

If you think you may be eligible for free school meals, please look at the attached document providing additional information. It is worth investigating this even if your child is currently having free school meals because they are in Reception, Year 1 and 2, as there are additional benefits.

Playtime contributions:

If you are having a clear out over the Easter holidays, we are on the lookout for items we can add to our playground class kits. In particular we are interested in figures such as Barbie, Action Man, animals etc.

SMASH Film Night on Wednesday 4th May:

Come and watch Encanto!

Our last Film Night was cancelled due to COVID restrictions. If you bought a ticket for that event this will be automatically transferred over to this Film Night unless you let us know otherwise. If you would like your child to attend this event, but have not bought a ticket before, you will have the opportunity to purchase one when the £3.00 ticket price is added to ParentPay.
