We're absolutely delighted to have achieved the prestigious Music Mark Award. The hard work & dedication of our fantastic Music teacher, Karen Hill, is hugely appreciated - the children love her lessons & anyone who has heard our 50-strong choir will know how amazing they sound!


There have been some amazing entries for the VIAT Transition Project! You can see all the submissions so far, from the pupils joining VIAT's secondary schools in September & find some inspiration to create your own, on the dedicated website. Details here:

We're so pleased to be able to help our local by providing some of our Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for them to use, including gloves, goggles, masks & paper suits. They're doing an amazing job and we're thrilled to support them in any way, however small!


How has the first day of home school been? We hope it's been fun... don't forget to send in photos of all the hard work being done by our pupils and any other projects you might have had a go at! We'd love to share them :) Stay safe everyone.


Last week, the children enjoyed an amazing assembly with RTS Parkour. The demonstrations were phenomenal and we heard all about what parkour is, how it allows freedom of movement and helps not only the body but, also, the mind. Thanks so much to everyone at RTS Parkour!
