Scholastic Book Fair – We would like to thank everyone for their support of the Book Fair held in the school. 
The Book Fair enables us to claim 50% of the sales taken as commission so we have been able to claim a marvellous £382 to use on buying new books for the school.


Open Evening – We hope parents enjoyed the KS2 Parents Evening this week. We had a wonderful display of work from years 3-6 pupils from the whole school topic ‘War and Peace’ and some fantastic interactive displays for parents.  It was great to see so many parents attend.  A big thank you to all the staff and the children for their preparation for this evening, and to FOWPS for providing refreshments.
