Dear Parents and Carers ,

we have had such a great first week back for the start of the Summer Term.

There has been a ‘buzz’ of chatter, play (and of course some work!) in all of the classrooms.



Please make sure that

  • school shoes are plain black
  • hair that is longer than shoulder length is tied up for school
  • PE kit is a plain white T-shirt and a plain track-suit
  • earrings are NOT worn on PE days



We have been in contact with RICARA our uniform supplier and are working with them to make it easier for families to buy school uniform. We are planning to hold a stock of samples here in school for your child/ren to try on (hold up against them). You will be able to place an order and pay by phone to RICARA or by visiting their shop. You can now arrange a home delivery with RICARA. I have attached the uniform list. If any families would like to buy pieces of uniform for this term, we will have our stock of samples available for you to try in the school hall on Tuesday 27th April 21 and Wednesday 28th April 21 at ‘drop off’ and ‘pick up’ times. Please use the hall door from the playground.

We will run this again in July in preparation for September. We have also arranged to have the uniform samples available for the brand new EYFS children at their Royal Garden Party on Saturday 3rd July 2021. We hope that this is helpful for you.



Over the next two weeks , we will be taking part in ‘THE BIG ASK’ questionnaire. This is a national survey for children to take part in. It has been initiated  by the ‘Children’s Commissioner for England, Dame Rachel de Souza. It will be an opportunity for our children to feel empowered to have a ‘voice’ within a national forum. The responses will be collated and used to shape future initiatives.



On FRIDAY 30TH APRIL 2021 we will be joining many other schools in the country to run the Daily Mile. ALL children will need to come to school in their PE kit that day. Each class will record the amount of miles that they have run collectively. We will then calculate the final total for the whole school!

Thank you for a great first week back! Enjoy the sunshine this weekend and we look forward to seeing everyone on Monday.

Take Care

Dear Parents & Guardians,
WOW! We made it !! What a term it has been! It has been great to have our whole school family back together again since the 8th March 2021. We now look forward to restrictions beginning to lift and allowing more interaction between the children in different year groups. We will keep you informed of any changes that we will be making.
