Rewards Morning Each week children earn bouncy castle minutes for completing their homework. We have a reward morning where we have a bouncy castle and an ice cream van in school.  Children can redeem their minutes earned on the bouncy castle! Don’t panic – ice cream always comes after bouncy castle time.
Dressdown Day On the last Friday of the month, we hold a Dressdown Day. Children are invited to come into school in non-uniform and bring £1. All money goes to the Friends of the School and goes towards paying for school trips.
Learning Together This term, we are inviting parents to come and take part in a wider curriculum learning together session.  You will see what your child has been learning in an afternoon subject with them.
SEND consultations Amy Addison is our school Special Educational Needs Coordinator. Each half term she will be holding SEND consultations for any parents wishing to discuss any SEND concerns. Amy will be there to offer support and referrals to outside agencies as well as to discuss support within school.
COOL afternoon This is an opportunity for you to come and see what your child has been working on during our whole school theme week and also to wander around school and see what every class has been doing. COOL stands for Come and Observe Our Learning.
