Break time tuck shop!

From Monday 2nd October Miss Halls will be opening a Tuck shop during break time.

If your child wishes to buy snacks please can they bring their money with them in a named purse as the children will be responsible for looking after their money and paying for tuck.


New year, new start!


Wow – what a fantastic start!

All the children have settled in to their learning and routines superbly and we are extremely impressed by the exemplary behaviour of all.

Chestnut class have enjoyed a marvellous first week with Miss Edge, Miss Mulligan and Miss Wright, kicking off their new topic- 'Ourselves and our Families'.

Willow class are now feeling at home in their new classroom with Mr Gooch, Miss Torode and Miss Wright and have also jumpstarted their Living Memory history topic 'Now and Then', beginning by looking at toys, from today and in the past- setting up a toy shop in the classroom.

Oak class have really excelled themselves- showing really mature motivation in their learning, getting well and truly stuck in to their new topic studying life during WWII, including the Battle of Britain and life on the Home Front.


 Attendance and success

Good attendance is vital for good progress at school - Children only get one chance at school, and your child's chances of a successful future may be affected by not attending school regularly.

Please take a look at the Attendance information under the Parents Tab.

The tree represents the fact that we are a nurturing, forest school. 

The leaves represent the diversity and unity of our school community working and learning together. It represents the fact that we are about the growth of the whole child and that we are stronger as a team. 

The hand as the branches of the tree represents our 'AIM high' motto, reaching up for strength and support from the community, as well as aiming to be good contributors to our community - striving to be the best we can be. 

The tree growing out of the book comes from how we see that children grow from their learning, inspiring a love of books and reading, as well as respect and love of the stories in the Bible. 

The white cross at the heart of the tree, makes clear our commitment to our church values and the fact that we are proud of our status as church academy within the DNEAT family.
