Dear parents and guardians

I can not begin to explain how it feels to be sitting in my office typing this and listening to the sound of children playing on the school field as if nothing has ever changed.  The school has been filling up since we 'closed' in March and then 'reopened' to more children in June and if we could have, we would have had all the children back. So we will just have to contain our excitement for a few weeks before we open for all year groups on September 7th. 

Today is a day of mixed feelings for many of us. For some this is their last day and none of us could have ever predicted such an unusual end to the year when it began way, way back in September. Not only does September seem a long time ago, but also a world away from where we are now.  For those children and staff leaving today we wish you well in whatever the furture brings and please do keep in touch and let us know how you are getting on in your new adventures.

For those of you returning in September or starting for the first time, we can't wait to get started again. Please click here to find out arrangements and the changes necessary to facilitate the full opening in September. Much has been missed this term, but much has also been acheived and we very luch look forward to finding our what new skills and interests the children have developed since their enforced absence.  

Other sounds carrying on the wind and through my window today have included the nursery and reception children embarking on a pirate treasure hunt in the Jungle and Year 1 playing on the bootom playground in their individually designed and maufactured sea creature t-shirts, recently made. So as you can probably gather, there has been much going on, right up to the last minute! 

So from all of us here, have a lovely summer and we look forward to welcoming you back on Monday 7th September.    

Best wishes

Jeremy Cooper

A fabulous week that involved learning in the jungle for a number of our classes (please read on to find out more) and ended with the whole school walking around the village for Sports Relief. Thank you for supporting this event and we raised £186.30 for this good cause.

Please be aware that the school is now required to notify the Local Authority if a pupil has ten unauthorised absences (equivalent to five days and not necessarily consecutive) within a two year period upon issuance of the letter at the end of the absence request form. 

Please bear this in mind if you are booking a holiday.

School Funding
Funding enough money to provide all the resources and opportunities we want the children to have is increasingly challenging, but there is money out there we can claim that we haven't and we need your help please. All children were sent home with a letter requesting you provide us with some details and we will be then be able to systematically and regularly check to see if the school is entitled to additional money based on your circumstances. Please do complete the letter and send it back to us, even if you don't tick any boxes just yet, because once you are registered it will check in the future should your circumstances change. Please click here for the letter or ask the office for a copy. GDPR (data protection laws) laws are complied with.

This week has been a week of nunerous 'firsts' for me in a school that includes a couple of poet pupils taking it upon themselves to convert some of the school rules into poems! Please read on to find out...it's in the unform section.

This term we have all worked hard on what one might describe as a 'whole school New Year's resolution' - only to run in school school where you're meant to. With the excitement of Christmas looming a large number of children had forgotten this as last term drew to a close. It has been nothing short of inspirational how the whole school has worked together, led by the children, to so quickly kick this habit and left me wondering if us adults are so rapidly effective when trying to break a habit. I can't remember the last time, if ever, I keep a New Year's resolution! And of course, our new poet laureates wrote  about running in school but I'll save that one for another time.

Please do read on to find out what has been happening in and around the classes.

Have a wonderful weekend everybody and we look forward to seeing you next week.
From Jeremy Cooper and all the staff and children.

Please do read what has been happening in all classes this week, because there is such a variety and much to ponder. This week has included children raising and discussing in P4C (Philosophy for Children) lessons questions such as 'Are we all the same?' and 'If you are told not to do something, should you do it anyway?'. This second question raised by Year 2 when learning about Mary Seacole (read on to find out who she is), whilst another class are currently researching women who have changed the world and if you havent already guessed our Value for this half term is Inspirational. Additionally, all classes are getting deeper into the whole school topic on health, including learning about significant plagues throughout history!

Today brings to a close a long and very busy term and week! The last couple of weeks have presented us with our magical nativity performances firstly by Turtles and Dophing and closely followed by Years 1 and 2, rounded off by our Key Stage 2 carols service yesterday that was truly uplifting.

A bog thank you to all of you for your support of these and everything else this term. Please read on to find out more about what has been happening in and around school...

The end of another excitable week running up to Christmas that started with our nursery and reception children performing a very special nativity early. So many of you came out to see it, including returning in the evening in atrociuos weather! Thank you for all of your support. Next week it is the turn of Years 1 and 2 on Tuesday (2pm and 6pm) and then our  carol service on Thursday (St Mary's church, 2pm) - we hope to see many of you at these celebrations.

Thank you to the PTA for their help and all the staff supporting the children with the making of their Christmas enterprise craft. Each year it gets more and more creative and the ginger scented kiln fired gingerbread man tree decorations are no exception!

Please read on to find out more that has been happening in and around the school...
