Thank you to FOWPS – Once again the FOWPS committee have demonstrated how important they are to supporting the school and raising funds to benefit all our pupils.  I would like to thank the FOWPS committee for all the hours of work that went into planning and organising the Christmas Fayre this year.  They raised an amazing £1890, all of which will be used to enhance the educational experiences of our pupils.  In the past, funds have been used to pay for classroom and playground resources, as well as subsidising school trips.  One of their great successes was raising funds for one of our much needed school minibuses.  We have so many more class trips as a result, which children really enjoy.  The FOWPS committee are now very close to one of their longer term targets, replacing the older minibus.  This again would be a great achievement.  So a big, big thank you to all the FOWPS members for their hard work and fantastic support for the school.  It is greatly appreciated.



All orders for Christmas dinners have now been placed.  If you have not ordered a Christmas dinner for your child/children please ensure that they have a packed lunch on Wednesday.
