New car park is nearly complete


It is very exciting to see that the new car park is close to completion.

The new gates were installed today, with these being operated via the main school office.
Hopefully this will enable staff and visitors to park more easily.

Parents are reminded that, as part of the Council planning approval, they are unable to use the car park during school hours. The car park will be open to parents during parents evenings, meetings and performances.

We love to write!

These girls in Year 1 were incredibly proud of the writing that they had produced.
This was a retelling of a tale of a little white owl.

I was impressed by the cursive writing, the confident use of speech marks and the flow of the stories.

All four are quite right to be smiling so much….well done!

The day we met a Princess


At our school, we give the children many opportunities to become involved in the community.
Last week, a group of children were invited to take part in the Olympic Torch Celebrations at Harewood House. Princess Beatrice was representing the Royal Family, this making it quite exciting!
