A note from Mr Applegate

A reminder to book your parents’ evening slot – details have been emailed.

A huge well done to…

  • Our Year 4 pupils, who enjoyed a 3 day residential at Ufton Court. They were fab!
  • Our 70+ DanceLive team who performed at the Guildhall, Portsmouth. So talented, so proud.
  • Year 1 pupils for their very successul trip to Milestones.

Thank you FOSM and parents – we took delivery of new table tennis bats and table, and new chromebooks this week. Your hard work and donations make a real difference.
