‘Travel Thursdays’ – 6th June – 4th July

As part of the Active Journeys programme every Thursday for the next five weeks will be known as ‘Active Travel Thursday’. We will be running a competition between the classes to see which class walks, cycles or scoots to school the most and the winning class will win the golden boot on the final Thursday (4th July). We hope all children will participate where possible and support their classes. Every journey will count! We look forward to finding our winning class.

Attendance

Our target for pupil attendance is 95.7% for the school. We would like to say thank you, as our current attendance for the year stands at 95.93%! That is an amazing effort from everyone. The Spring term’s report showed our attendance was 96.11%. Thank you.

A big thank you

We want to say a big thank you to Ms. Thomas, who is currently acting as our caretaker. Ms. Thomas is very dedicated to the school and has recently added colour all around the school in the form of flowers, in hanging baskets, plant pots, and even tyres. It has really brightened up the school’s outdoor environment. Thank you.
