Dear Parents,firstname.lastname@example.org if you are experiencing any technical issues. I would like to wish you a wonderful and joyous Christmas with your loved ones. Stay safe and I look forward to seeing you all again in the New Year. With very best wishes Dr Rebecca Ashcroft Head Miss Claire Thompson

Today’s ‘Christmas Fun Day’ was hugely deserved and a testament to the hard work that has taken place since September. It was wonderful to see the range of Christmas jumpers around School and the smiling faces – particularly at the tombola! Having said that, one of the highlights for me today was during our weekly Celebration Assembly, when it was announced that an approximate total of 11,000 merits have been awarded this term. A fantastic achievement and I can’t wait to see further success next term.
In the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful and restful break with your family over the holidays. Homework has not been set to allow the children to fully recharge and enjoy their Christmas.GoFundMe linkYear 6 Forest School Just a reminder that this will take place every Thursday from 13 January to 17 February and pupils will need to wear their PE kit on these days: Year 6 Forest SchoolAfter School Co-Curricular Clubs We will be reviewing our provision in light of the current restrictions and any further guidance we may receive.

What a lovely end to the school year we have had this week. Pupils in Nursery through to Year 3 have recorded their Christmas reading and Carols, and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the Years 4-6 perform their Christmas production online. It is such a credit to all the pupils that despite having no live audience, they have managed to perform with such enthusiasm and excitement. Many thanks to all the staff for their hard work on these wonderful performances.Metro FM Cash for Kids Appeal Can I offer my most sincere thanks to all those who have donated gifts for the ‘Mission Christmas’ appeal. The donations that have arrived in such a short period of time is fantastic and I know your generosity will put a smile of some child’s face this Christmas. New Staff We are looking forward to welcoming two new staff members to the Junior School in January. Firstly, Mrs Victoria Smith joins the Junior School as teacher of Year 5, Key Stage 2 Coordinator and Assistant Head. We also have Mrs Lisa Rogers coming into Year 2 to cover Mrs Cooper as she takes maternity leave. We wish you both a very happy and successful time at the Junior School. Mrs Butler It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to Mrs Butler today. I would like to thank her for the work she has done in Year 5 this term and I’m sure we will see her again and some point in the near future.
