The school has had a great deal to celebrate recently, in various arenas, and it was marvellous to see the whole school come together for a truly magnificent Jubilee Party just before half term. Many thanks to everyone who supported the school and PTFA in enabling the children to be part of a memorable occasion.

Many thanks to those parents who have ordered their lunches for Thursday 14th June. We look forward to seeing you at 12pm. Please could you make sure that your child knows if you are attending.

As you can see from the diary dates on this page, the school has got a great deal to look forward to in the coming 6 weeks. There have been a few dates added to the original ‘Diary Dates’ letter sent home previously. Please make sure that the evening dates for the school production are in your diary as this is something that all children will be taking part in. Thank you to those parents who have volunteered to help at either (or both) of the whole school trips to see the Olympic Flame and the visit to Southwold. We now have enough parents joining us for these occasions – if you’d like to check, the list of parents for both trips is in Tracey’s office. Please remember that the deadline for ordering the school Olympic t-shirts is Friday 15th June.

PTFA FETE As is traditional, the four Fridays in the lead up to the fete will be ‘Come as you Please’ days. In exchange for the children being able to wear their own clothes, we would appreciate donations of the following for the fete:
