Have a safe holiday. All the best.

Easter Service

A huge thank you to Rev. Sue Jellyman who led our Easter service on Tuesday in the church. It was lovely singing our Easter songs and taking time to think about Easter story and Holy week.


A huge thank you to Ms. Mullock, Mrs Hall and Mrs Reynolds for taking Eagle class to PGL over the last few days. Everyone returned tired and muddy, having had a lovely time.


Vision Test

A letter was sent home with your child earlier this week regarding routine eye tests for Reception children. Please note that if you do not wish your child to be tested you must complete and return the form on the letter by Monday 17th April. If you agree to your child’s vision being tested you do not need to do anything.
