School News

Today is the last day of this half-term, tomorrow is a teacher day. We have had a busy half-term and we continue to appreciate parent’s support.

We hope everyone has a lovely half-term break and that we can all come back to school on 31st October ready for the run up to Christmas, which is always lovely in school.


Sadly, we will be saying goodbye to Mrs Cook today as she moves on to work for a local charity. We wish her lots of luck in her new job.
