New school update image The new school building is progressing well
Update on relocating to our new school...
arrowsee more

...there is a likelihood that we will be unable to move into the new building until around mid June 2016.

We are liaising with the Local Authority and will be able to have a definite date for moving during next term (Term 5).

In the likely event that we will have to move over the summer period, this will mean a change in the end of term closure dates (i.e 2 weeks before scheduled summer break).

Families will be notified in writing and information will be posted on the school website as soon as a decision is made.

Lead dance instructor Ricky Blackett had one hour to choreograph a routine. The children then had to perform live during assembly.
There was a session for key stage one and a session for key stage two.
