  • Packed Lunches

    Published 23/04/18

    Thank you to those parents and carers who have sent their children in with healthy packed lunches as part of our updated Food Policy.

    As a reminder, crisps should only be included in packed lunches on a Friday. This decision was taken as part of our Food ChampionProgramme and an awareness from the British Heart Foundation that eating one packet of crisps per day can add up to drinking 5 litres of cooking oil per year!

  • Skype session with a Marine Biologist

    Published 13/03/18

    Today we had a Skype call from Charlotte Orba, a marine biologist who works for Wise Oceans. She showed us photos and videos of the coral reefs that she has dived to. She has even swam with sharks and saved turtles. She has asked for our help to look after the ocean by reducing plastic use and saying no to plastic straws. She has inspired all of us. We may have some future marine biologists!

  • Infant School Closed

    Published 27/02/18

    I am sorry to say we have made the decision to close the school today.
    I don't make this decision lightly as I know how important it is for children to be in school and for parents to be able to get to work.But I have looked at the forecast and it is predicting further snow and temperatures between -6 and -8 degrees. If we managed to get some staff and children in my worry is we might not be able toget everyone home safely. It boils down to keeping everyone safe.
    I have been in communication with other Headteachers and school staff since 5am this morning and a number are reporting heavy snow and difficult road conditions.

    Its a tough decision to make. Take care, wrap up warm
