Young Voices at home!

As you are aware, our KS2 children will be joining hundreds of other schools in the mass choir to sing at Young Voices 2017.  This is an amazing opportunity for the children and those that have been in previous years have thoroughly enjoyed themselves – it’s like being at a pop concert!

To support the children in getting performance ready, you can download the Young Voices app, which has all the music resources on for the children to sing along to.  Just follow the link below to download the app.

Breakfast Club

Our Breakfast Club continues to grow in popularity; the children are loving the variety of activities, not to mention the choice in breakfast!

The breakfast club form for Autumn Term 2 is now available to download from our website under the Parents section.  Alternatively you can click here and it will take you to the correct page.

It is important to note that if you do wish to use the breakfast club whether it be regularly or for odd days here and there, you must still book in advance to ensure we have the correct level of staffing on site. We have had occasions where children have turned up without prior booking, luckily we were able to accommodate them but this may not always be the case.

Thank you.
