Mia's fundraising for The Little Princess Trust

Monday, 06 February 2017

One of our students Mia had courageously decided to cut her hair in effort to raise money for The Little Princess trust. She cut off over half of the length of her hair and proceeded to donate the hair in aid to create wigs for children with Cancer that have lost their hair in the process of Chemotherapy. We are all very proud of Mia for raising £1382 and still counting.

Well Done Mia !



School Librarian

Wednesday, 01 February 2017

Would any parents like to help us out with our KS2 library each afternoon from 3pm- 3.20pm?

You could sign up to as many or as few days per week as suits you. During each library session, you will be scanning in books that the children have returned and also scanning the new books that they have chosen.

Before you start, you will receive training on how to use Junior Librarian which is a basic online librarian system which scans and records books as they are borrowed and returned.

If you are interested please pop into the office to let them know or email Miss O’Neill on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Friday 3rd Feb.

Thank you!
