This year, Year 4 will be visiting Castleton on Thursday 9th to Friday 10th May. We are having a meeting for parents and carers at 2.30 pm on Tuesday 5th March. If you are unable to attend, we will send the information home with your child.
Last year the key stage 2 Christmas carol concert was a huge success and hundreds of parents attended the service.
This year for health and safety reasons we are going to ticket the event as the church can only accommodate 250 people. So that all parents get the chance to watch their children we’ve decided to have two carol services. See the times below:
Tuesday 11th December, 1:45pm and 5:00pm.
Details regarding ticket sales to follow.
Cancer affects many families across the UK including families within this school.
During break time on Friday 28th September, Riley and his classmates will be selling cakes, badges and bracelets to the rest of the school. To support Riley, the PTA will also be selling these (from inside the gazebo outside Y1/Y2) at the end of school on Friday 28th September. All proceeds from the sale will go to Macmillian Cancer Care.
Riley would therefore really appreciate if you could help him by donating cupcakes, buns, biscuits or any other sweet treats for him to sell (please leave all donations with Mrs Tune at reception on Thursday/Friday next week).
Please could you also send money (in an envelope marked with your child’s name or in a purse/wallet) in with your children on Friday 28th September so they can buy something (cakes will cost 50p, badges £1 and bracelets £2).
We hope you can support Riley with his idea and we thank you for any help or contribution you can make.
The PTA (and Riley)
Today is St Alban’s Day
Our school sets huge value on the quality of courage so let’s take a moment to think about St Alban’s courageous act.
St Alban is venerated as the first recorded Christian martyr in England. His death came as a result of him shielding a priest to whom he had given refuge. It is in the nature of this story that it concerns one who gave his life for his values and beliefs.
Though a legend the story embodies something of the vulnerability that is required if we are to act in courage. Alban quite literally cloaks himself with the garment of the one he seeks to protect and, in doing so, takes his place.

Over the Easter holidays Charlie was confirmed at Rotherham Minster. Today in collective worship, he is going to share his experience with the rest of the school.
