School will be closed for the Christmas holiday from Monday 19th December to Monday 2nd January.  We will re-open on Tuesday 3rd January for all children.





We believe that it is important to celebrate achievements.  As part of our 'Good to be Green' behaviour and reward system, each week, children may be given a certificate, a gold letter from a member of staff or a certificate from Mr Dickinson or Miss James.  Here is a list of some of the children who have received an award this week:
