Congratulations to Pine class and Sequoia class  who top the attendance table this week.  Well done to everyone who came to school every day on time to ensure that we reached our overall target of 96%.


We are always looking at ways in which we can become environmentally friendly and reduce our carbon footprint. We have received fantastic and very positive feedback in regards to the online booking system which has been implemented for parents evening appointments and this has significantly reduced the amount of paper used in school. From the beginning of next term we would like to trial a new system for the circulation of the weekly newsletters. If you would like to continue to receive a paper copy or an electronic copy of the newsletter  please come into the office and inform Mrs Taylor. If you do not make a specific request you will be able to access the newsletter on the school blog and facebook page every Friday. I am sure you will agree with us that this will go a long way towards us becoming a ‘greener’ school and working towards a better future for all of our children.  

Parents Evening - 28th & 29th March

We are looking forward to welcoming parents into school on Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th March for parent consultations. Your child will be bringing home today an appointment time for you to meet with their teacher and find out how they are progressing this year. On this occasion the pupils books will be available for you to look through and these will be situated outside the classroom in trays. Please feel free to have a look at the work and then return the books in the trays to the table. Looking forward to seeing you all next week.

During the morning, two games will also be running. Firstly, we will have a raffle, each strip will cost £1 and there are some fantastic prizes to win. Secondly, we will be holding a 'Guess the amount of Noses' competition. Around the hall, Red Noses will be scattered, your job is to guess as close to the correct amount as you can. £1 to enter, will you be our lucky winner?

Finally, during lunch time the children will 'Cage the Teacher' who has the most votes. The voting for this is going to tcpntinue tomorrow morning. The children can vote for the teacher they wish to cage at Lunch or Break time and it is 50p for one vote, the children can vote as many times as they want.

We hope to have another successful Red Nose Day.

Competition Winners: TfL Easter Card

Again, the JTAs were inundated with fabulous entries for the TfL Easter card competition which made it very hard to judge the winners. The children designed fantastic drawings which showed how Becky the Bunny would deliver her eggs over the Easter period. Well done to Emily Claydon (Birch), Molly Vincent (Pine), Fallon Sharpe (Sequoia) and Lillie Mersh (Willow). Great job; your designs have been sent off to be judged by Transport for London!
