We hope you all had a lovely Summer and are looking forward to a great year ahead  with us.


Our 13 Reception children have settled in quickly and have had a great first week, helped greatly by our Year 1s and 2s. Infant classroom layout   

To accommodate the big intake of Reception children this year, we have re-arranged the infant classroom to make a dedicated area for teaching Year 1 and 2 and a larger area for the Reception children to learn through play.  


Dates to follow for:

Harvest assembly

Christmas carol concert



School council



As part of teaching about democracy which is part of fundamental British Values within our SMSC curriculum (Social, moral, spiritual and cultural curriculum), this week the whole school have held elections for new school council reps for each year group. From Year 1 upwards the children prepared manifestos and there was a democratic secret vote. The Junior children also made their own election rosettes which they proudly wore around school  and  they learned how to write a detailed manifesto.


The Junior classroom has been rearranged to make a dedicated quiet area for Year 6 to be taught separately from the rest of the junior children at set times during the week, since it is such an important year for them.

The results are in:

Reception:    Grace Cummings

Year 1        :    Lexi Pattinson Year 2        :    Casey Scandle

Year 3        :    Anna Rooney

Year 4        :    Grace Barwick

Year 5        :    Mason Armstrong

Year 6        :    Dilys Bell (Chair)

                         Chealsey- Bell  



                         Isak Hershon                            (Treasurer)
