Best Attendance Award!

Congratulations to Year 2 who have won our fabulous trophy for ‘Best Half Termly Attendance’ for Autumn 1. The trophy was received with pride in assembly this morning. Well done Year 2!!!!!

We have some more good news to share with you – we raised over £700 for Children In Need last week – more than ever before! This is amazing; a huge thank you to everyone involved and to the children for their wonderful fundraising ideas, planning and organisation.

Children In Need 2019!

We have been very busy today raising money for Children In Need. Activities have included a penalty shoot out, a dance off and ‘throw a wet sponge at a teacher’! Congratulations in particular to year 6 who clocked up a grand total of five hours in their sponsored silence held yesterday!

An enormous thank you to our ARP children and staff for leading the organisation of today, and especially to Mr Owen for being such a good sport! Thank you children for your fabulous fund raising ideas and for your enthusiasm throughout the day. We will confirm the amount we have raised after all of the money has been counted. Well done everyone!!
