We have had confirmation that Eid will be celebrated on Monday 12th September, so school will be CLOSED next Monday 12th September.

We expect children to be at school as normal at 8:50am on Tuesday 13th September, and they can come to school in their party clothes as we will be celebrating Eid in class on Tuesday afternoon!

Please also bring some party food into school – check with your child’s class teacher if you aren’t sure what to bring!

Welcome back!

Back to school 2016

I hope you’re all ready to come back to school on Monday 5th September 2016? All the school staff are really looking forward to a new school year with our new classes!

Just a reminder: we expect you all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in the playground before 8:50am on Monday 5th September, so try to get a few good night’s sleep before then!

We have also had confirmation that Eid will be celebrated on Monday 12th September, so school will be CLOSED on that date

Can’t wait to see you all next week!

Imp info School Closures

We have two closures coming up next week (week commencing Monday 4th July 2016).

On Tuesday 5th July 2016, the National Union of Teachers has called for strike action which will affect the following classes:

* 3b (Mr Lomax)
* 4b (Miss O’Dwyer)
* 5a (Mr Lowe)
* 5b (Mr Couldridge)

Children in the above classes should not come into school. Children from all other classes should come in as normal as their classes are not affected.

On Thursday 7th July 2016, the whole school will be closed for one day only, and will reopen at 8:50am on Friday 8th July.

May Day Bank Holiday is coming up

Although you wouldn’t think it to look at the weather, it is May Day Bank Holiday this weekend!

Bank holiday weekend!

That, of course, means that school is CLOSED on Monday – we’d normally suggest going out and having an extra day of fun, but this time we’ll all be snuggled up indoors out of this snowy sleet. We’re back in school as usual at 8:50am on Tuesday 3rd May. Enjoy the long weekend!
