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!

The end of another busy week that ended with me being presented with a truly inspirational poem written by one of our Year 5 children, aged 9 years, on our whole school value for this term of Inclusion. It was thought provoking in a time when division appears to be on the rise in our society.

I would really love all of us to include every child and make sure they are never excluded
Never treat them differently and make sure everybody obeys by that rule.
Carefully offer to help and notice sad actions
Learn to be kind and polite and put in great effort to help
Use our personalities to make them feel brighter
Sit down next to them and let them speak out
Each year people struggle and being inclusive can help a lot
I'm sure our school is capable of this.
