Headteacher's Welcome

 We have had such an egg-citing week in school this week! The Reception children were amazing in their Spring Concert; their singing was fabulous and they showed such confidence. The children looked like they were really enjoying the performance and impressed us with how well they had learnt the song words and remembered the actions too - well done Reception!

The children had a super time on Wednesday at the Easter Egg Hunt - they followed a number of clues which led them to some special treats left by the Easter Bunny. Thanks to our fabulous PTA for making this event so much fun!

Thanks to everyone for the egg-stra support this week with making Easter bonnets and other egg-citing creations. The children all looked fabulous! 

Take a look on our whole school gallery!

Have a lovely break! I hope you all enjoy some rest, relaxation and quality family time...and of course lots of chocolate! 


Rainbow Raffle. Thanks for all the donations.  Winners will be contacted!! 
A huge thanks to our PTA for fundraising, planning and helping to create our fabulous new garden area.  Fingers crossed we will get some sunshine after the holidays and be able to use it.
A HUGE Thank You everyone for your support!

You will have seen a few new faces around school and we also have a new deputy starting after the holidays. We will send out further info after Easter introducing you to the full team.
