A Message from the Principal:

Dear Parent/Guardian 
 
 
We are delighted that the work has commence on our multi purpose hall and thankfully the bulk of the work will be completed during the summer holidays. However there will be an element of disruption to the daily routine in school with a staggered break and lunch period once the builders break into the existing assembly hall. School dinners will continue to be produced in the school kitchen but will be served in the classrooms. Provision for this has been arranged between the school and the school meals’ service. 
 
As the school’s enrolment will have increased to over 120 pupils by September 2014 I had expressed my concerns to the SELB regarding the need for us to have 5 classes next year and consequently 5 classrooms. 
I am delighted to announce that the SELB has decided to build on a fifth classroom and this work will be completed by the same contractor and run in tandem with the work on the multi purpose hall. 
 
 
 
Yours Sincerely 
 
Mr. M. D.J. Hall

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.
