A note from Mr Applegate

Summer term is definitely well on the way, even if the weather isn’t quite there. From Year 6 pupils working hard for their SATs, to our Year 1 pupils loving Forest School, all children continue to make us proud.

Look out for an email regarding your child’s sports day colour. We ask that they wear a t-shirt of this colour (or as close to it as you can). Details about sports day are below.

Thank you to…

  • Everyone who donated clothes for Bags2School today. 766 kilos gave us £306.40!
  • The 10 volunteers from Virgin Media who helped with various site improvements on Monday
  • The Estlea family for donating football goals (arriving soon)
  • The Healey family for kinex
  • The Hunter family for a big box of lego.
  • A legacy gift of £1000, given by a lovely St Mark’s family, to go directly to The Mud House Children’s Foundation.

Have a great weekend. Mr Applegate :)
