21st January 2019

As I go around school at the moment I’m delighted with the focus and hard work of the children, this is always the term when a lot of progress is made. Please support your child be hearing them read and by helping them to learn their spellings and times tables.

This week the clubs, choir and master classes are beginning. Artist, Katherine Renton will be working with the children in key stage 1 this week.

We are very grateful to Boots Opticians for funding our new defibrillator which is situated in the entrance lobby. Representatives from the Stephen Carey Trust came into school last week and trained staff and parents so in event of an emergency we can respond

The Friends held a successful Clothes Swap event on Friday evening and now they are planning a pool inflatable, soft play and roller disco on Sunday 3rd February at Willowburn starting at 3pm. Tickets will be available from the school office.

On Friday we have a prospective pupil with a severe nut allergy visiting school for the afternoon. Please can  you ensure that all packed lunches are nut free - this included chocolate spreads which tend to contain hazelnuts, many thanks.

Attendance last week was 96% which is exactly on course for the school target of 96%. Well done Maple class who achieved the highest attendance – 98.2%!


Other dates to remember this week are:

  • On Monday morning there is a Golf Competition at Willowburn for a team of children from years 3 and 4
  • Rowan Class Assembly – Thursday at 2:30pm
