Head Teacher’s Message
Welcome back to our new summer term. Our teachers have lots of interesting activities planned for this term and hope that you will enjoy hearing what children have been working on at consultation meetings, and will support them with their homework and reading outside of school.

Many thanks to everyone who supported our fundraising efforts. We are very close to our target of £4,000 and you should soon be hearing about the free summer trips your children will be enjoying!
