Headteachers Message 8th June 2018

Dear Parents,


     I do hope you all had a great half term and that you were able to enjoy at least some of the glorious weather we had.


     Many thanks to all the parents who were able to support Sports Day on Monday. Whether you were able to join us for the whole event or just pop in to share in the picnic lunch with your child, it was lovely to have you here and we hope you and your children enjoyed the morning . See all the fabulous running race medallists below. A huge thank you to Mrs Pond-Barrett who made the whole event happen and also a big thank you to the QM’s department who were a huge help in the preparations!


     Have a wonderful weekend,

Notice for FS1 Parents
Hello all our FS1 parents! You may have noticed a sign has gone up asking that outside of the following times:
8:45-9:00 and 12noon -12:15
when the FS1 setting entrance door isn’t manned, please access FS1 via the main school building and reception.
We have made this decision in order to keep our youngest children as safe as possible. Thank you so much for your co-operation.

Competition Time!
We have 2 competitions running as of  today:
1) Name our school currency
2) Design the picture to go on the school bank note
Children can enter as individuals, jointly with heir parents or it could even be a whole family effort. See the information coming home today!

Y6 First Aiders

Before the half term we had a couple of afternoons and a morning session with Mark Harris who taught us everything we need to know about First Aid.

We covered: bleeding, burns, breaks and sprains, choking, heart attacks, how to deal with an unconscious casualty, performing CPR, using a defibrillator, putting someone in the recovery position, and much, much more! We had great fun bandaging each other up!

Thank you to Mark Harris for providing such useful training for the children.
