We are very proud of our school and all of the opportunities that we give our pupils. We value all individuals, pupils and adults, and seek to ensure that everyone reaches their full potential, leaving them ready for the next stage in their learning journey.

We believe that we are an open and welcoming school and have excellent relationships with our parents. This is very important to us.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

A huge thank you to all the people who donated items for our Macmillan coffee morning; thanks also to all the parents,  family and members of our local community who supported the event by coming along and digging deep into their pockets!

What a fantastic morning we had! The hall was buzzing with activity and, as you can see from the total below, we made a whopping amount of money for this amazing charity.

Shooting Hoops

Team Equality have been developing their ball skills throughout this term through a variety of games including basketball.
Today, the children took part in some matches in their owl teams and showed fantastic communication, teamwork and a positive attitude. As well as this, the children all took ownership for their learning too during different segments of the lesson. For example, if a team felt that they needed to work on their shooting tactics, they used the equipment that was made available to them to develop their own team-led practice activity to develop this skill. It was particularly nice to see sportsmanship too at the beginning and end of games as the children wished each other luck and celebrated everyone's successes.

Courage Chocolatiers

A fantastic morning in Team Courage today, Maths and English sessions all based around our chocolate bake.

Children used their expertise to follow instructions, weigh ingredients and make delicious Rocky Road for Friday's Macmillan Coffee Morning.

Courage Fri TB - Peaceful

A beautiful day greeted us so we found a peaceful spot and tried a bit of mindfulness. 

After this, we found something beautiful and showed it to other people, explaining why we liked it so much. 

We finished with paint-brush making, painting and a game of hide and seek.
