23rd September 2016 Newsletter

Dear All,

Today is the last day of our Roald Dahl fortnight extravaganza which was brought to a close this morning with our special celebration assembly. The children have completed some fantastic work, much of which is displayed around the school or in the classrooms. Each class was able to participate in a Roald Dahl workshop based on one of his novels, each class also had a Roald Dahl party which parents and carers were also invited to. It was great to see so many parents sharing in their child’s achievements. I  have been so pleased with the standard of writing that the children have been able to achieve from the work we have done over the past fortnight. I must thank Miss Smart for organising this event and to all the staff for fully embracing it.


We have ben working closely with the NSPCC this term, as well as taking assemblies, they have also done some class talks with Y5 on the importance of “Staying safe.” On St Michael’s day 29th September we will be having a ”Wake up– shake up” for everyone to do. This is a sponsored event and the money raised will be donated to the NSPCC who do tireless work mainly provided by volunteers. Thank you in advance for supporting this.

Coffee morning

Don’t forget my coffee morning which will be on Tuesday  27th September at drop off time in the infant hall. I would very much like to set up a “Parents Forum” from this event, as well of course as having some cake and coffee and meeting all of our  parents as possible. I look forward to seeing you there.

Have a great weekend  Mrs K Sexton

Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is a sum of money allocated in addition to core school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers.
