KS2 Play ‘The Ides of March’

On Wednesday 15th March our junior children will be performing the Ides of March. If anyone has any unwanted cream sheets which could be used for Togas or old cord/braiding that could be used to tie the Togas, we would be grateful if you could send them into school. Thank you.


Safety in the school yard before & after school.

Could we please ask that parents do not let their children play with balls or get any out of the storage box, either before or after school? Thank you.


School Uniform

We wish to consult you about the introduction of a tartan skirt or pinafore to our girls uniform. We have also asked if there is an option for a tartan tie. We have a sample of the tartan kilt in school if you would like to view it and pictures of the styles available.
We will be sending a letter home to gather your opinions after the break. Thank you.


Keeping Children Safe Online

We are now able to offer an adult course, free of charge to be held in school on Monday 27thMarch from 1:15-3:15pm. This course will take approximately 2 hours and we need a minimum of 8 parents to attend. Please let us know if you are able to attend. Thank you.



Just to give you some advanced notice, we will be doing another Bag2School collection after the Easter break on 25th April. Please save any unwanted clothes, paired shoes, hats, bags, belts, ties and soft toys. The collection bags should be arriving in school the week commencing 27 th March and we will send them home as soon as possible. Remember, we get paid by the weight so every little will help. Thank you.
