Scholastic Book Fair

Thank you to everyone who supported our recent book fair. We raised over £600 which gave us £300 to spend on books for the children to use in school.

Please remember to send in completed forms and deposit by Friday 13th December in order to take part.

School Uniform Recycling

The school has an enormous number of abandoned sweat shirts. We will be spreading them out in the school hall on the afternoon of Wednesday 11 December. Please come along and either search for items of clothing that your child has lost or take some of the sweatshirts to be used again.
