Doing all the good that we can through faith, love and excellence

  • As part of our Methodist partnership, year 6 visited Kent College farm on Wednesday. Pupils said it was enjoyable although a little smelly!
  • Year 1 have the first of four Appeti tennis coaching sessions on Tuesday morning.
  • The children in Reception class have had an excellent start to their time with us and have settled well. They certainly look very smart in their new uniforms. They are in for longer next week with parents invited to join them for lunch on Tuesday or Thursday.
  • Year 4 are taking part in an Animate Arts workshop on Friday. This will be linked to the Canterbury Festival parade at the end of the term.

Worship has also been led by Mrs Duffy with Mrs Twiddle leading choral worship on Wednesday. Mr Way will lead our celebration assembly each Friday afternoon.

This term we have a few occasions on which parents are invited to join us for worship. We have a harvest service in the church on Friday 27th September and two class led services on the 4th October (year 6) and 18th October (year 2). All three will start at 9:15am.


A big thank you to Tony Hart for providing wood chippings for our forest school. This is greatly appreciated.


Club letters will be sent out very soon. There will be a range of clubs and much time is spent on putting the list together. Information on how to sign up will be detailed on the letter.


School Dinners

Caterlink provides our dinners and they have been very clear with us that hot meals will not be provided for those children that have not had their dinners paid for in advance. This leaves us in a difficult position as we would not want to prevent a child from having a lunch if this has been requested but we are not the ones providing the food. Therefore please ensure that school dinners are paid for in advance. If this is not the case you will be contacted in the morning requesting that either payment is made or that a packed lunch is brought in. Thank you for your help and support in this matter.


It is always a pleasure to see the children return to school dressed so smartly in new uniform and shiny shoes. However please can you ensure that any hair accessories are functional and minimal rather than being too large and bright. Please also make sure that all uniform items are labelled with the child’s name and class as this will save time for the staff and will help reduce lost property.
