Reception Crafty Christmas Workshop

Family Learning will be holding a free Crafty Christmas Workshop for Reception parents on Tuesday, 5th December, from 9.00 until 10.30 am.  This will help parents to support their child’s development by carrying out some fun Christmas activities with them.  Places are limited so please contact the Infant Office to book.

Reception Appeal

Reception would be very grateful for the donation of any dolls and prams in good condition which are in need of a new home.


This week’s winners are:

RL       98.89%                  4A             99.33%

There were 90 lates recorded this week.  Please make sure your child arrives at school on time every day.  Late arrival not only affects their own education but also disrupts the rest of the class.  All doors open at 8.50 am so all children need to be in class ready to start lessons at 9.00 am.
