Harvest Festival

Thank you ever so much for all your wonderful contributions to our Harvest Festival on Wednesday. We had a wonderful morning and it was fantastic to have so many parents join us for our celebrations.

The Wellspring has now collected our donations and they are being distributed across our local community. Thank you again for all your support.

Dogs in the playground

Please can I politely remind parents that dogs are not allowed in the school playground. I kindly ask that all parents respect our school policy.

Thank you ever so much for your support with this matter

Forest Schools

We are delighted that we now have a provision for Forest Schools in every year group. Mr Stamper is working hard with all of the children across school to ensure they have an exciting and creative experience. Forest Schools is designed to develop children’s resilience, co-operatively learning and communication skills.

Forest Schools is delivered to small groups of children on a weekly basis and in blocks of approximately six weeks. We understand that every child is keen to participate in this activity and they will do so over the year. We appreciate your patience with this matter.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Osborne for organising such a wonderful event which raised £109.45 for Francis House.
