This week’s top news & reminders

Transition morning is Wednesday 12th July. On this morning, the children will find out their new class and teacher, and spend an hour with them. We’ll also email you on the same day along with their end of year report! Year 6 reports come out on Monday 17th July as the SATs results come out later.

Spend some time with us on Tues 18th July After School. You can meet your child’s new teacher, and walk around the School Art Exhibition to see your child’s work on display!

You may be aware that the NEU are taking strike action on 5th and 7th July. As before, we will be in touch if your child’s teacher is taking action and so the class will be closed for the day. Please have arrangements up your sleeve,

Thanks to Steven Pugh for volunteering his skills and time to repaint some of our paving slabs!

Well done Ruby!

Ruby in Year 3 has worked  really hard to achieve her goal of joining a swim academy. As the youngest participant by far, she has had to work extremely hard during the sessions. In the short time that she has been there, she has been an enthusiastic participant and shown great sportsmanship. Keep up the great work!

Well done Arianne!

…for receiving her certificate and belt for her first taekwondo grading which she completed last weekend. She is now a 9th Kup White Belt!
