Happy New Year!
We have had a lovely start to the term and it’s nice to see everyone back. Our assemblies are focussing on being kind using our banner
“Love Your Neighbour – do something kind today”.
Congratulations to everyone who received a certificate for 100% attendance for the Autumn Term. Keep up the good work! Remember – even if you didn’t get 100% last term, you can still try for this term. Start now!
Pupils who had 100% attendance for the Autumn term will be entered in a prize draw for £10 book tokens. The draw will be in Celebrations assembly on Friday 19th January.
Our Christmas raffle raised £260
for playground equipment. New equipment has been ordered – we’ll let you know when it arrives!
Rights Respecting Schools
We are very pleased to announce that we have achieved our Bronze award
and we can display this logo to show everyone. We’re now working towards our Silver Award.
