Strike Day Highly Likely

It is very likely that the school will be closed on the 10th of July due to strike action by the NUT, GMB and Unison. So that includes teachers, TAs and other staff members. As soon as I have confirmation from staff re: their intentions on that day I will let you know.

Friday Morning Sing-a-long

Just a reminder of our drop in sing-a-long on Friday mornings. All family members and children welcome. We have a sing-a-long with Mr Brazil from 8.30 until 8.45. Its great fun and good for your serotonin levels. You’ll find us in the hall.

This week’s Key Stage 1 winners are Year 1 and in Key Stage 2 the winners are Year 5. Well done to both classes for being on time for school!
