Latest updates from our school
The new school entrance is now open and ready to use.
After two months, the ribbon was cut at the opening ceremony by round-the-world cyclist and friend of the school, Leigh Timmis and I'm sure you'll agree the new entrance looks spectacular.
We would like to encourage you to sit and enjoy the space when dropping off or collecting your child.
A huge thank you to Graham Middleton and the team from Denby Construction and Barbara Goodburn for their ideas and hard work in making our school entrance look so inviting and welcoming to our school community and visitors.
Well done to all our award winners from our achievement assembly today. You have all worked very hard in English this week and demonstrated the high standards that we expect from our pupils. Well done also to Sophie and Cerys for helping and supporting a member year 3 at the Go Ride and for being excellent ambassadors for our school. For this you were awarded the Headteacher's Special Award.
The team Go Ride Event was another huge success at school. Not only did we have over 70 participants from across Amber Valley, but the Kilburn Team were champions for the third year running and go through to the County Finals. A well done to the team and Mr Whiteman for managing them.
Some outstanding performances by players taking part in the Amber Valley Kwik Cricket Competition at Denby Cricket Club. Well done all players for their valiant effort in the heat of the afternoon sun. In particular, well done Jack for scoring 14 off one over- Top hitting!
Thanks team manager Mr Barber and parents for your support.
Mr Goodburn, our new Forest School Leader and his Trailblazers from Team Equality are enjoying their time in the school woodland. They are exploring the area describing their feelings in the wild spaces.
