Well done to all of our Stars this week.

Class 1 – Oscar for demonstrating an excellent attitude to his learning this week.  

Class 2 – Savan for his fantastic delivery of his lines during the class 2 assembly this week.

Help Wanted!

We now have balance bikes for Year 1 and Reception Class. However, we would love some support with maintaining the bikes. If anyone is an enthusiast in this area and could offer a little bit of time each term, Mrs Tomes would love to hear from you.  Thank you.

Skipping Challenge for Cancer Research UK

Aidan in Y5 and his Mum, and Jack in Y5 and Alice in Y2 and their Mum decided to complete the skipping challenge in February to raise money for Cancer Research UK.  The team each did 100 skips a day and raised a grand total of £902!  Well done team for raising such a fantastic amount of money for a great cause.  They would like to thank you for your sponsorship and support.  


Please do not book holidays or family days during term time.  Missing even one or two days of school can be detrimental to your child's learning as key information is missed. Friendships are also affected.  Holiday absences will show up as persistent absence which is checked by Ofsted when they visit and monitored closely each half term by the Education Welfare Officer at RBWM.  Looking ahead, it is almost certain that the Government will require fixed penalty notices and associated fines to be issued for holiday taken during school term time.  The current penalty is £60, per day, per child, per parent if paid within a certain number of days.  So 5 days off for a holiday for two children would result in a fine of £1200 at the current rate.
