Happy Sunday all.

As we enter the last week of term we are looking forward to a fun packed last 5 days. (With lots of learning of course!).


Please make sure your child has a waterproof jacket in school. We are trying to keep them outside at break times but we do get caught out with the rain at the moment!


Children are not allowed to wear smart watches in school. Jewellery should be restricted to a pair of stud earrings and a watch. Charity bands are allowed if they are not excessive. Temp tattoos should be removed for school and head wear should be school colours and appropriately sized. If you are buying new bags for autumn a reminder that these should be small and children may only need to bring their lunch box, book bag so other bags may be unnecessary anyway. Thank you for your help with this we have limited corridor space.


This Wednesday is teacher drop in after school to discuss any thing arising from your child's report with their existing teacher. It is not a scheduled parent's meeting and is not compulsory. There will be a full parent's meeting in the autumn term to discuss how your child has settled in their new year group.


The  career's fair in school on Friday to inspire our year 5/6 children with options for career choices was a  great success! The children visited various stands which were kindly exhibited by parents and members of our local community. The children asked some really insightful questions and showed great interest in talking to the various exhibitors.

We would like to thank the following businesses for giving up their time and providing this opportunity for the children to think about their future goals and aspirations:


Royal Air Force



Mechanical Engineers

Rolls Royce

Microsoft Gaming Studios

Secondary Science school teacher

National Highways


We look forward to building on this next year.


I hope you all have a lovely week.
