Children in Need 2013

Congratulations and a big WELL DONE to everyone who contributed to our Children In Need fundraising on Friday 15th November.

Our Own Clothes Day, Cake Sale and Bush Tucker Trial, together with Sponsored Jobs and sales of wristbands & Pudsey key fobs, raised the fantastic total of £350 for a very worthwhile cause.

November Parents Evening

Many thanksto all parents and carers who made such an effort to attend our Parents Evening on 14th November, despite the cold weather! It was a great turnout, with parents and carers having the opportunity to meet with Pastoral staff.

We also thank our friends from the Local Authority, School Health and Connexions, who were on hand to answer questions.

Please could you return the Parent E-Safety Survey. This will help our staff to identify issues and concerns, and to provide appropriate support. If you would like a copy of the survey it is downloadable here –

On Wednesday 13th November the whole school were entertained by the Kinetic Theatre Group. They presented a play called Fillacavity Hotel, which was all about teeth and skeletons.

Thanks go to Mrs Dillon, our Head of Science, for arranging the visit to our school which was enjoyed by pupils and staff.
