End of Term - Staff v Pupils

We would like to say a BIG thank you to Max Browning, one of our Yr 6 pupils in Class 13 who organised such a great event with the Staff versus Pupils Football match.  

The final result was 6-6 - but we are led to believe that one member of staff was given a Yellow card!!  

Well Done Max - we hope your football has gone well today too!

Performance Photography

Please remember at performances/events that although photography/recording is allowed so you can record these magical moments of your own child(ren) we do request that you do not use images of other children for distribution on social media unless you have the parents’ permission. Throughout your child’s time at school there maybe children who cannot have their image on social media and also some parents who do not wish their children to appear.  We would ask that you all take this into consideration – Thank you.
