Final reminders and updates before we start tomorrow!


  • Thank you to our grounds maintenance team who helped on Thursday evening. We had about 15 in total. A special mention to Mr Naylor and Mr Ford who gave much time on Friday and today. Thank you.
  • Thank you to Mr Calver, our new ‘Outdoor Facilitator’, for his huge efforts over the summer. His work on the farm, Year R, and other areas, is making a fantastic difference to our school.
  • We also have newly refurbished toilets in Year R and also for Years 3&4.
  • For play and breaktime, we’ll be in 3 new zones and will have greater mixing across the year groups. We’ll introduce new playground equipment, too. This is to encourage ‘discovery’, ‘relaxation’, ‘creativity’, and ‘physical activity’.
  • There is much to do still – please let your children know that the farm won’t be ready just yet :)
  • Your fundraising for our school is making so much of this possible. Thank you.
  • We’ll keep the traffic flow that we had before – ie walking one way around the playground.
  • We’ll be back in the hall for lunches – both packed lunch and school dinners.
  • Did you see this post about uniform, timings, PE days etc?

See you tomorrow – Breakfast club from 8am, KS1 and KS2 gates open at 8:30am.
