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:

Flu Immunisations Thursday 5th January 2023

The flu immunisations for children in The Lodge and Reception to Year 6 will be taking place on Thursday 5th January.  A letter was sent to you earlier this week on the School Gateway app with the information and a link to click to inform the NHS if you give your consent to your child receiving the vaccine in school or not.  It is a small spray into the child's nose.

Christmas holiday food and activities vouchers for those eligible for Free School Meals

If your child is eligible for Free School Meals, you will receive emails in the week beginning 12th December with the information for the Christmas food and activities vouchers.  Please make sure that we have your correct email address logged on our system.
