“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord”

– Colossians 3:23

Weekly Newsletter - Friday 20th September 2019

It has been mentioned by parents and governors, that opening the school at 8.30 am is easing congestion on the main road. Therefore, after careful consideration and discussion with governors the school doors will continue to open at 8.30 am.

Reception Children

Mrs. Perry has asked that the now the Reception children have settled so well into school, please can the children enter on their own in the morning – thank you.

Open Day Wednesday 25th September 9.30-11.30 & 1.30-2.30

If you know of any children who will start school in September 2020, please encourage them to visit school next week.


A reminder that we are collecting Aldi stickers in school. Please send your stickers to Mr. Young or hand in at the office.

School Ball

The Ball is less than a month away so please buy your tickets if you have not already. Tickets are on ParentPay and cost £50 each - for that you get a glass of fizz on arrival, a three-course meal (and if last year is anything to go by the standard will be very high), a fantastic band and what promises to be an amazing night in a stunning venue.

Please remember that all profits from the night go straight to buying essential resources for our children. Last year we funded the KS2 playground, new laptops and Maths Whizz. This would not be possible without events such as the Ball being a success.

After School Clubs          

Could I please ask that if your child no longer wishes to take part in any of the staff-led after school clubs, that you inform the office.  We can then open up any places to other children – thank you

Attendance:  The winning class this week is Year 1.

Breast Cancer - Fundraising

On Friday 18th October we will be holding a “wear pink” fundraising day for Breast Cancer Care.

Please can we ask that your child wears an item of pink clothing for the day, and a donation is sent in with your child.  This will be a non-uniform day.


We give you our school. We give you all the teachers and staff who work here. We give you all the children who study here. We pray our school would be place of great discovery, adventure and creativity.

May it be a place where we love to learn and where we learn to love,

A place where everyone is respected and all are deeply valued. We ask all this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
