Enterprise Week

Enterprise Week 23rd - 27th May

Parent reminder: Please can all pupils bring 1.00 to school this week for our grow a pound activities during Enterprise Week. Thank you.


Due to the unavailability of staff, there will be no School Crossing Patrol provision on Corporation Road outside the school from 8th to 10th June 2016.

Parents are reminded that the responsibility for the safety of their children to and from school remains with them and in view of the absence of a Patrol, should make arrangements for children who may be at risk to be accompanied. It is, of course, expected that infants are accompanied at all times.

REMINDER: Milner Street Courtyard Junior Entrance to be closed

From Monday 23rd May, the Milner Street Courtyard area will be closed to parents. A safe fire escape route for pupils will be kept open only.

Please can all parents arrange to collect pupils from Classes 4 LDy (Miss Dyer),

4 CBr (Mrs Brown) and 4 DG (Mr Godsall) from the main Junior Yard. All pupils will be brought out onto the Junior yard at the end of the day to await parents collecting them.

Thank you for your support in this matter.


Friday 27th May is a non-uniform day for both pupils and staff.

Please bring in your bags of old clothes to recycle - proceeds to Eco-Council initiatives!

Year 6 Speed Monitoring

Year 6 pupils took part in a mini PCSO project to raise awareness of speeding near our school. They used hand held speed guns and speed boards to monitor speed.

School Council Civic Centre Visit

School Council held a meeting in the Council Chambers at the Civic Centre. Thank you to Councillor Jeavons for arranging the visit. The children really enjoyed finding out about Council meetings and the role of a Councillor.
