Thank you to my amazing team.  We've improved from Red to Yellow in less than three years and this is testimony to everybody's relentless hardwork and professionalism. Really proud! xx

The 'Show Racism the Red Card!' Team are visiting school on 2.3.17. The target year group for this organisation is Y5 and I'm really looking forward to taking part in the interactive workshops.

We have introduced the roles of Head Boy and Girl this year.  They have a list of jobs to do over the year but the most important is to represent school to special visitors.  Mr Blackburn made the choice and it was a very difficult decision but we are proud to announce that Morgan Parry is the Head Boy and Seren Wilkie is the Head Girl.  They will be magnificent ambassadors!

A pupil who takes 10 days holiday (authorised or not) in an academic year will only attain 94.7% attendance.  Please continue to support our target of 95% attendance and take family holidays during the school holidays! 
Please contact school with the reason why your child is absent from school as soon as possible.
Please be specific with the reason for the absence.  Please do not use the words: 'poorly', 'unwell', 'ill'

The Local Authority will not accept these words as authorised reasons for absence.  Also, if we know the exact reason, we can support you with services like - the school nurse!

Thank You
Nick Blackburn
