Pupil voice

On Monday 03 December a theatre company came into school to perform Beauty and the Beast.  Kai and Jemima were very excited to share their comments about the performance with you and this is what they said…

Kai said, “It was really creative, there were only two people performing but it was really funny.  They played five different characters and had to keep changing their costumes.”

Jemima said, “It was really funny and enjoyable.  I liked the way the lady pretended she was in the Forest.”

Information

School Lockers

Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school.

School Uniform

Please ensure that you label your child’s full uniform, including PE and swimming kits.

PE Kits

Could parents please make sure that all pupils have their PE kits ready and in school.  Each pupil has their own locker where their PE kits can be kept during the school term.

Just a polite reminder: please do not leave litter on the school premises.

Late arrival at school

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
