We close for the Summer holidays on Friday 17th July. All children will currently return to school on Monday 7th September.


Home Learning Week Begin 13th July

During the week beginning the 13th July, the teachers will not be following the Home Learning Timetable. Instead, your child will be provided with a range of transition activities on ClassDojo. These activities will be provided by their new and current teachers.


Staff Gifts and Collection of PE Kits/Medicines

We have had several queries about the possibility to collect PE kits and medicines, and to deliver gifts for the staff. We have therefore decided to allocate days for different year groups should you wish to do this. Items can be collected from or dropped to the staff at the car park gate between 2.15pm – 3.30pm on the following days;


Mon 13th July – Nursery and Reception

Tues 14th July – Years 1 and 2

Wed 15th July – Years 3 and 4

Thurs 16th July – Year 5 and 6

Garden Plans

You are still able to donate to the garden renovation on ParentPay, should you choose to.


Can you support one of our parents?


Starting 1st July one of our parents began the challenge to run 26.2 miles over the month, in support of Cancer Research UK. Joining others in raising vital funds for life-saving research.


Sadly, we all know that cancer is so prevalent. Every penny makes a difference. Particularly in these times where charity shops and other forms of fundraising are closed or postponed.


Please support if you are able. https://givepenny.com/rupaplatjouw_marathon_month_challenge
