Leavers Assembly & Balloon Release

Please join us in St Andrew's Church for our Leavers service on Wednesday 24th July at 10.00am , and again at 2.30pm for the Balloon release on the school field.

Lucas Lodge

Our new classroom finally has a name. The School Council has been running a competition across the whole school to ask the children what they think would be a good name. Most names stayed along the tree theme and we had some brilliant suggestions: Silver Birch Lodge, Hazelnut Tree, Walnut Tree, Holly Tree, Banana Tree and Sycamore to name but a few. However, we had one suggestion that counted up to be the most popular and that is Lucas Lodge in memory of Jane Lucas who worked at this school for at least 28 years.

Most suggestions for this name came from Oak Tree Class, so that class will have an extra playtime as a prize. The School Council are now in the process of organising an opening ceremony!


Sadly Ron died over the Easter holiday- we are really missing our delightful guinea pig with all his quirky behaviours. However, he had the most wondertful life being a class guinea pig, never having a dull moment, and we are remembering that.

Mulberry Tree Class now have Doris and Nora, two baby female guinea pigs, who are very lively! Mrs Pilcher is working her magic on them and they are becoming much calmer.


Emma's Usborne Book Sale

Thank you to everyone who supported the book sale during parents' evening- the sales generated nearly £600 for the school to spend on Usborne books. 

A Brilliant Easter Egg Hunt!

Well done to FOSTA for organising a super Easter Egg Hunt- the hunt kept the children busy for ages collecting letters and pictures. The children must have run miles! Thank you Team FOSTA!
