The Book Fair will be on from Wednesday 14th November to Monday 19th November, from 3.15 to 3.45 in the Lower Hall. The Book Fair generates a lot of free books for each class, chosen by the children themselves, so it is well worth supporting. In order to keep the Fair from being too crowded, each phase has its own night:
- Early Years – Wednesday 14th
- Key Stage One – Thursday 15th
- Year 3/4 – Friday 16th
- Year 5/6 – Monday 19th
It will be great to see you there!

On Friday 26th October we will again be having a Harry Potter themed non-uniform day in memory of Jenny Baldock who sadly passed away 2 years ago.
All pupils are invited to come into school dressed as a character from Harry Potter- Jenny was a big fan so we decided that this was a fitting tribute to her. Pupils are asked to bring in £1 donation which will go towards redeveloping the John Lally garden at school.
At 1.15pm on Friday 26th October pupils from Key Stage 1 and 2 will be going on a walk to remember our former colleague and friend. We will all be walking up to Millennium Bridge and back.
