Team Hope -Team Hope Christmas Shoebox appeal must be in for Thursday 9th November as all Shoeboxes are being collected on Friday 10th November. Further information is on the leaflet attached.


Accelerated Reading – Targets will be reset for the second half of Term 1. Targets are set every half term and are based on your child reading for at least 20 minutes per day. Targets are generated automatically on the AR System and are achievable for every child. Please encourage your child/ren to reach their targets.

Safe Travel Plan – Thanks to all the parents and pupils who continue to use the designated drop off points in the mornings. The flow of traffic in and from the school has been gradually improving because of this. With parental involvement, local councillors and outside agencies the school is currently in the process of developing a ‘Safe Travel Plan’ to make the route that our children take to school a safe route, and by doing so encourage more pupils and parents to walk, scoot and cycle to and from school on a daily basis.
