Headteacher’s Message

We had another super week in school last week. I really enjoyed going around the classrooms and talking to everyone about what they’ve been learning. I saw dancing, planting, building, playing, counting, writing, programming and a lot more besides. It was also lovely to see everyone making the most of our school field on the few dry and sunny lunchtimes we had. Thank you to all those parents and carers who were able to join us for our Celebration Assembly on Friday afternoon. We hope you enjoyed finding out what everyone had been up to and celebrating our achievements with us. We’re very much looking forward to seeing parents/carers of Classes 1 and 3 on Friday 26th April. At 2.45 the green gate on the KS2 side of the school will be open to allow you to come and sit at the back of the hall. Please do not come through the main entrance. The children will return to class at the end (3.10pm) and can be collected as usual. We look forward to inviting parents of EYFS and Class 2 next Friday 3 rd May.

Lastly, we have had an email from a local farmer who is concerned about our children’s safety. He is worried about children playing unsupervised on fields around the village. There is risk from large moving machinery but also from exposure to the chemicals that have been sprayed on some of the crops. He is also concerned about children accessing private land without permission. I will speak to all the children about this in school but I wanted to make you aware of his concerns so that you can have a conversation about this at home, if you feel that it’s appropriate.
