Dear Parent/Guardian 
Principal’s Message 
The entire school community was delighted when we took possession of our new multi-purpose hall on Monday 15th September. We now have a facility that is fit for purpose and can accommodate school dinners, PE etc. The new build also offers much needed storage and through the funds allotted by the SELB I have been able to purchase staging, chairs and a data projection system which will be on site within the coming weeks. We have now resorted to having one break and lunchtime which has reduced disruption to teaching time. 
Now that the hall is complete the builders are concentrating their efforts on building the new classroom that will accommodate Miss Haslam’s P2 class. This work is due to be completed prior to the Christmas holidays and P2 will be in using the room from January onwards. 
I would like to thank all of our parents for their support and patience thus far with any disruption they have experienced and would encourage all those who are free on Friday 10th October to come to the coffee morning and see the new hall. 
The new hall and classroom will be formally opened at a date to be decided in the new year. 
Yours Sincerely 
Mr. M. D.J. Hall

PTA Bags2School 
The PTA have organised a collection to be made on Wednesday 22nd October. Each pupil has taken home a bag for this collection so it’s a super opportunity to offload any unwanted clothing and also raise funds for the school. 

Aspire, Aim and Achieve 

In school we have designed a new noticeboard which will enable us to highlight achievement by pupils each month. This board allows us to celebrate the achievement by a pupil from each year group plus the after school club. Certificates are awarded during a full school assembly on the last Friday of each month. 
We encourage all of our pupils to “Aspire, Aim and Achieve” in everything they do both in school and at home. We have taken this slogan as it is the motto for the 2012 London Olympic Games.
