! Hello Visitor,

Afternoon Tea Thanks

The school has been inundated with letters and cards of thanks for the recent community afternoon tea. Feedback from the event praised the children's work that they shared, the music that they played and, above all, the impeccable manners that they all showed whilst they served refreshments and chatted to all those who came. Other adults who helped with the organisation of the afternoon tea were also singing the children's praises. The school looks forward to repeating this event in the not too distant future.

Poppy Appeal 

The Poppy Appeal fundraising was a success - many thanks for supporting this cause. Following an assembly on Thursday morning, some of our older children sold the items to all of the school pupils. All of the money was collected in the Poppy Appeal container and so we are not sure how much was raised - all I can say is that it was very heavy and the box of goodies was nearly empty!

Children in Need

CIN posterOn Thursday 14th November, the school are holding a Children in Need Cake Sale, courtesy of Elsa and Hattie.

You may remember that, last year, the girls organised a similar cake sale and they would like to do it again!

You will see posters (like these) dotted around school.

If you would like to support this event, please send in cakes that Hattie and Elsa can add to their stall.


On Friday 15th November, the school will be holding a mufti day in return for voluntary donations which the school will send to Children in Need.
