in September. Please return the reply slip on the bottom of the letter as soon as possible. Thank you.


General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The law changed on 25th May regarding GDPR. Paperwork has was sent home before the break. It is very important that it is signed and returned to school as soon as possible, there are still quite a few outstanding forms not back in school.
Please note, on the data contact sheets, you need to get each contact to sign by their details, as consent for us to hold the information on file.


School Lottery

Last week’s winner was Mrs Pearson.
This draw is open to everyone all over the country; it would be wonderful if you could ask friends or family if they would like to join. As well as a guaranteed weekly school winner, there is also a chance of winning £25000 in the national draw every week. The more tickets we sell, the higher the prize money.
If you have not yet bought your ticket, or your debit card payment has finished, the link to register is  here if you join in the Summer term there is a chance to win one of 5 £50 restaurant vouchers.
Please note, as this has turned out to be a major fundraiser in our school year, we have decided not to ask for the school funds anymore. Thank you.


Non-Uniform day Friday 22nd June

Next Friday will be a non-uniform day; payment for this will be chocolate or sweets for the chocolate tombola stall at our afternoon tea on Thursday 28 th June.
