Sun Safety 

Now that the warmer weather is here, we need to think about sun safety. 


Please provide your child with a named sun hat and ensure that they have a named plastic water bottle (with sports cap opening). 

If your child requires sun cream, please ensure they apply it before school. If you wish them to reapply sun cream before breaktimes, lunchtimes or outdoor PE, please provide them with a named bottle. Staff are not allowed to apply sun cream to children, so please ensure that your child can apply it themselves.  


Greek Day - Dress Up

On Friday 9th June, we will participate in a 'Greek Day' where we will taste traditional Greek food, learning the Greek alphabet and looking at Greek myths. We are also asking the children to dress up for the day. There are some pictures below for inspiration.

Coronation Day Celebrations

What a wonderful day! Everyone looked amazing in their red, white and blue and spent the morning making flags and crowns for the parade.


The parade was held on the main field and started with a rousing rendition of “The Sound of the Trumpets” (a specially commissioned coronation song for schools).


Following that, each year group paraded around the field whilst everyone clapped and waved their flags.


Just at the end of the parade the heavens opened but, in true British style, we carried on regardless! (It’s what the King would have wanted).


 We hope you all have a glorious coronation weekend.

This week is Deaf Awareness Week (2nd-5th May 2023)

Please click on the document below to find out more information about how to be deaf aware.

It is important that everybody, no matter who you are, feels valued and included within a community.


Thank you to Mrs. Botterill, who spent the afternoon putting all of your lovely letters and pictures to King Charles in envelopes, addressing them, and putting on the stamps.

They have all now been sent to Buckingham Palace.


Coronation Song for Schools: The Sound of the Trumpets

The children will be learning a specially commissioned coronation song for schools so that we can all sing it together as part of our celebrations on Friday 5th May.

As a rights respecting school we are taking part in UNICEF UK’s OutRight campaign this year.


The rights respecting class reps are leading pupils in an activity to create a poster showing why we think healthcare is important for all children.  A selection of posters from the school will be displayed in the school or sent to Unicef to be used as part of the OutRight campaign.


OutRight Campaign:

Through OutRight children and young people are supported to learn about, and speak out on, children’s right to the best possible health and how strong health systems support this. As part of UNICEF UK’s efforts to promote children’s voices we want to make sure that decision-makers of all kinds understand:

• why this is an issue that children and young people care about

• how health and health systems affect children’s rights

We plan to do this by sharing children’s work on this critical children’s rights issue, with an important decision maker and their team at the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) of the UK Government.

Please note, only children with siblings in Nursery to Year 2 should use the Dorset Road gate.


Please remember that children must be in the correct school uniform which should be clearly labelled with their name and class. (see our school website for full details of the uniform policy). Although resources will be provided in school, if your child wishes to bring their own pencil cases then they can but please ensure that this, and the contents, is fully labelled.


Please ensure that your child’s P.E kit is in school from the start of term and again,  each item is clearly labelled with their name and class.  The children will require their P.E. kit during the first week of school and this should include trainers for outdoor use.
