As the temperatures have dropped a little this week please can we remind you all to ensure that all coats, scarves, hats and gloves are clearly named so that the children can leave school with exactly what they arrived with!


As well as our Harvest festival, collective worship this week has been led by Revd Tim, Mrs Wilson and Mr Way.

At the beginning of each collective worship we say our school prayer which really reflects what it means to be part of our school.

This is our school, let peace dwell here, let our rooms be full of contentment, let love abide here. Love of one another, love of life itself, and love of God, and let us remember, that as many hands build a house, so many hearts make a school. Amen


We have been advised that Cornerstone Telecommunications Infrastructure Ltd (CTIL)are seeking to upgrade a radio signal antenna in Station Road. They have asked us to inform our parents so that you have an opportunity to raise any concerns before the proposal is finalised. If you would like to know more the school office is holding further information which you are welcome to come and look at.


We are delighted to share some exciting news with you all. Both Mrs Clark-Murphy and Mrs Walters are pregnant and expecting their babies in the new year. We are currently in the process of bringing in a new teacher into year 2 and organising somebody to work alongside Mrs Pickles in year 5 from January. The staff and systems we have in place will ensure that the children’s education will not be adversely affected. Both teachers are planning on returning to us at some point in the next academic year.
