KS2 Production –  Well done to all the KS2 children for their performances in ‘The Snow Queen’.  We had two very good performances from children who had worked extremely hard in rehearsals over the last few weeks.  It was great, once again, to see the confidence of children on stage and to see Year 3 to 6 children performing together.  Thank you to all the parents and families who came to watch the performance.

A big thank you must also go to the staff who helped to put the production together, but in particular, to Mrs Lecorgne who produced and directed it.  Once again another successful production for the school!

The collection after the performances raised £109.24 which will be put towards stage lighting.



Thank you – We are very grateful to Mike Hill from Woodcote Garden Centre for providing the lovely Christmas Tree for our school entrance hall.  Thank you very much.


School Dinners – The new menu for next term is now available online at ‘Kitchen Live’.  If you are unable to view this online please ask in the office for a copy.
