What a lovely week we’ve had! We had a great morning celebrating harvest this week. We enjoyed all the activities; which included making animals out of nature we found on our grounds, fingerprint trees and pine cone hedgehogs, among others. The display looks beautiful.
Thank you to all the families who have already donated to our harvest appeal, any last-minute donations can be brought to school for Monday. Thank you.    

Ofsted – we would like to say thank you for your comments, in person and on the online questionnaire, and support during the inspection day.  The children, as always, were a credit to the school and we are pleased with how the day went. We will let you know when a copy of the report is available.

Tower Wood – next Tuesday the junior class will be visiting Tower Wood Outdoor Centre. This activity centre on the shores of Lake Windermere offers a wide range of both land and water-based activities, perfect for a day’s adventure!  There will be no charge for these trips, school will be covering the cost of both transport and instructors. Children should wear their own warm clothes, outdoor shoes or boots and will need a waterproof coat.  Waterproof trousers would also be useful if they have them. They will require a packed lunch. We have a full day planned and will not be back at school until 5.15pm.  An information sheet is attached. Should anyone have any concerns or queries please speak to Mr Stafford-Roberts.
