The school clubs information has now been uploaded onto the website. There are some new clubs available, not just after school but at lunch times too, for example Lego Club, Kurling. Please click here to take you direct to the clubs page.

Thank you and well done to all of those children who did some home-learning practice over the last week. We are really pleased with the start that the children have made. Please remember that 5 Privilege Points are awarded to those children who complete all of the activities: the spelling activity, times table practice and 5 daily reads each week.
Every Monday, teachers check the Home-Learning Log and set home learning for the following week . If you are unsure as to what your child needs to do, please come and chat to your child’s class teacher and they’ll be happy to help. Equally, your child could drop in to Home-Learning Club.
Home-Learning Club starts tomorrow at 12:30 with Mrs Christie. Any children who want a little bit of help with their home learning can drop in and Mrs Christie will be happy to help. Sharpening basic skills really helps the children to access the curriculum more easily and it means that we make good progress with our learning.

The daily price for a school meal will now be charged at £2.10 per day for a child.
For children in the Infants, they will be entitled to the Universal Infant Free School Meals funded by the government.
Junior children will be charged at the above mentioned rate if they choose to have a meal.
Those children who are eligible for Free School Meals will continue to receive them as normal. If you are unsure if your child is eligible to receive Free School Meals even if they are an infant and already receive the Universal Infant Free School Meals, please contact the office.
Please see the link below for the current Primary School Menu which runs until October half term.

Since we finished for the summer holidays, a team of parent volunteers have been coming into school to help refresh our Early Years / Key Stage 1 play area.
As you can see from these first photo’s, by the end of the school year, the area was in need of a little TLC!
Outdoor learning spaces are so important, which is why we can’t thank our volunteers enough for helping get this ready for our new intake of children in September and of course our current infants.
They have worked tirelessly through the hot weather, managing to obtain donations and great discounts from local gardening suppliers to make our Early Years area into a wonderful space to be.
I’m sure you’ll agree from the pictures below that it looks amazing – THANK YOU!
