As a school, we have decided to celebrate National Poetry Day this year by having a poetry themed week. This will be the week beginning 1st October 2018.
We have organised an exciting opportunity for the children as part of poetry week. On the 4th October, a children’s author and poet will be visiting our school to motivate and inspire children in their creative writing.
Joshua McManus, who is the author of ‘Did the Elephant Choose His Nose? And Other Poems’ will be talking to the children about believing in their imagination and how this is key and the start of everything and anything wonderful.
Joshua has kindly offered to do a book signing during the day, therefore if you would like your child to have their very own copy signed by Joshua, please follow the link below to purchase the book. Please ensure it is delivered before this event if you want it to be signed! Your child can then bring their copy to school that day ready to be signed.
Our Halloween Disco this year will be on Thursday 18th October.
Tickets will cost £1.50 and will include a drink and a packet of crisps (don’t lose your ticket as this will be what you swap for your drink and crisps!). There will also be additional sweets, drinks and glow sticks for sale so some small change will be useful on the day.
Please return the slip that went home, along with your £1.50 per child, by the 5th October to secure your ticket. Fancy dress is optional (but encouraged!), with prizes on the day for the ‘best dressed’, and some other games throughout the disco.
Early Years and KS1 will be from 4-5, with the older children of KS2 being 5.30-6.30pm.
We currently have several vacancies advertised on our website. Come and be a Midday Supervisor, an Admin Assistant, or a Site Officer.

A repeat of our earlier plea to year 4/5/6 parents:
At home time please wait on the playground nearest Ambury Road for your children to be brought out to you.
Please DO NOT take your children out of the queue as it moves to the playground.
Please DO NOT gather on the quad or by the black gate.
When you do this, it makes it very difficult for our teachers to know that your children have been released to the right adult. For the safety of all our children, please wait on the playground for your child’s teacher to hand over your child.
Icecream Friday is back, for one last go before we run out of hot weather! Come grab a treat tomorrow after school, in the quad.
Prices start from 50p.
Our online payments system, SIMS Agora, is now up and running again. Please try and log in again.

Our After School Clubs are open for registration – if you’re interested, fill out the form to register your interest and we’ll let you know if you’ve got a place after the deadline, which is the 21st September.
