Please let us know if your child has any allergies that we are not aware of.

World Book Day

World Book Day is on Thursday 7th March 2019 and to celebrate we are inviting all children to come to school dressedas either their favourite book character or  in their pyjamas as we are going to use this day to promote the importance of bed time reading! We would love it if all children participated but if your child would prefer not to then they must wear their full uniform please.

We are also going to have a ‘book swap’, your child can bring in one book that they would like to put into the book swap shop and the choose another one to take home with them and keep!


 ‘Book People’ Book Fair

This will run every night after school starting on the 11th March for a week. Please note this is a different book fair to who we normally use. The books are cheaper, but unfortunately, you can’t use the vouchers you receive for ‘World Book’ day is this for a week


Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day is on Friday 15th March 2019. To raise money for this important charity your child is welcome to come in wearing red for a £1 donation - the more red the better! We would love it if all children participated but if your child would prefer not to then they must wear their full uniform please.

We will be selling red noses on the lead up to this date.

Please remember it is PE every Monday so please ensure your child's full PE kit is in school so that they can take part.

Can you ensure all children have the correct footwear on with their uniform. This needs to be a pair of plain black shoes/trainers. Several children are wearing colourful trainers, boots and shoes.
