Following the Prime Minister sharing his plans for the gradual easing of lock-down restrictions this week I am certain that you were as excited as we were, to hear of the plans to fully open Primary Schools to all children on 8th March. We are now able to look forward to our whole school family returning together.
During this week the Senior Leadership team will be working tirelessly –yet again- to develop protocols and procedures for children, staff, families and visitors to return to school in a safe and measured way. These we will share with you as soon as we are able, however in advance we request your ongoing support and patience as we try to facilitate a calm, smooth and safe return for all children.
Keep safe and well

School reopens today after the half term break for keyworker and vulnerable children and remote learning continues for all the other children.
We were welcomed back by some beautiful daffodils at the school entrance this morning - Spring is on it's way!

Please be aware that the pavements around school on College Road and New Road are thick with slippery ice.
Our school paths have been cleared and gritted by our school caretaker - who has used the snow to make a school snowman to greet the keyworker children!
Please take care!

Ahoy there me hearties!
Last week the children in Yr 2,Yr 1 and reception discovered some treasure in the classroom and had great discussions deciding who it belonged to. We came to the conclusion that it belonged to a pirate. Then on Thursday we were visited by a pirate by the name of Captain Barnacles who confirmed it was his treasure. The children got to ask him questions relating to pirates. To finish the week the children dressed up as pirates and did pirate activities, such as learning pirate phrases,writing pirate sentences and creating some wonderful art pieces.

Our younger children were delighted today to receive a visit from Father Christmas.
He surprised classes CH, KM, KB & JT this morning, ringing his bell, having a little chat with the whole class and leaving a little treat for them all before he went on his way.
Sadly he wasn't able to visit all the other classes, as he has a lot of work to do before Christmas Eve, but he has left treats with the teachers to give out to all the children.
Happy Christmas everyone!
We wish to say a great big thank you to the Friends for funding a live streamed Pantomime for all the children in school.
All the classes have been watching a live streamed version of 'Cinderella' either yesterday or today.
They have thoroughly enjoyed it - and we can hear their laughter along the corridors...

We are delighted with our Celebration of the Christmas Story which has been sent to parents via a private link to view today.
The Nativity Story is brilliantly performed by the children in Foundation and Key Stage 1 and is accompanied by beautifully sung Christmas Carols from Key Stage 2. We are delighted with the results. The children have thoroughly enjoyed watching the ‘Premiere’ in school today.
Grateful thanks to Mrs Christie for her hard work in filming and editing to create this wonderful 30 minute video. We'd love to hear any WOW! comments if you've had a chance to view it.
