    Our new school rules - poster competition!
    Dear Parents and Carers As you know we consulted with you recently regarding our school rules and asked if you thought we should reduce the number of rules in order to make them easier for the children to remember. There was overwhelming agreement from you that this was a good idea. So, after discussion with the children, staff and governors we have agreed the following four rules: Be ready, Be respectful, Work hard, Stay Safe I have talked to the children in Assembly about the new rules and asked for their help in designing a poster so that the new rules can be displayed around school. So, please can ask your child to design a poster (A4 size only) and bring their posters into school by Monday 16th September. The School Council will then choose the winning poster. There will be prizes for the winner and also some runner-up prizes as well! Regards Jane Cook Headteacher

    Happy Holiday Tasks!
    Dear Parents and Carers Please find attached a 'Holiday Tasks' sheet. This contains nine activities to undertake with the children during the holidays. Please tick each activity that has been completed. Then sign the sheet and return it to school in September. Each activity completed equals one housepoint. So, this is a great way to get the children off to a good start in September! The children will also be bringing paper copies home in case you can't print the sheet off at home. My very best wishes for an enjoyable school holiday! Jane Cook
