A reminder that tomorrow, Friday 25th October, is our school INSET day. Staff will be in school for professional development, in relation to the new Education Inspection Framework.
Thank you for joining us for our Harvest Festival, it was lovely to share it with so many people. Thank you for your support during this half term
Reception Parents Evening
The cancelled parents evening this week for Reception has been rescheduled for Monday 11th November. We hope this remains convenient for everyone. If not, Mrs. Perry will make alternative arrangements to speak to parents. The appointment system will be live from 5pm tonight. There are still some slots available for Wednesday 6th November.
Isabelle, in Year 5, attended the North Mids Championships held over 2 weekends and won 7 gold medals and a trophy for top 9-year-old in the North Mids (about 20 clubs Cheshire West, East and North Staffs). She also qualified to swim in the Cheshire County Championships next January. We are all very proud of her.

Thank you to everyone who came along on Saturday and supported our annual Ball. We hope you will agree that it was a fantastic night! A huge thank you to Kristin Williamson for organising such an amazing event. Not only was it a great night but we raised an incredible £4,915 before fund matching!
We have received the mugs/ tea towels/ teddies from the Christmas Card company. Some were incorrectly labelled unfortunately. If you have received a gift which does not have your child’s design on, please return it to school. The Christmas Cards should be with us mid-November.
