It was so wonderful this morning to have our first full Key Stage 2 assembly for a very long time! We loved being back together and the children were able to share their History Society learning with one another.
It has been lovely to see so many of our children wearing our new PE t-shirts and they are proving really popular! Don’t forget – you can get your special Diane Lockwood Legacy shirt from the school office – £5 each.
It’s an exciting afternoon in school as our amazing Year 6 perform Bugsy for the first time and it live streams into all the other classrooms. They are such a talented bunch !
Commiserations to our fantastic England team who did themselves proud last night and congratulations to Italy and also to Year 3 Tulane who have won our school sweepstake. Their prize will be a trip to Mr Mulligan’s Dino Adventure Golf on Thursday. Well done Year 3 !!
New Online Application for Free School Meals
We have developed a new online application form for parents to apply for free school meals, and school clothing and school journey grants. We hope that this is more convenient for parents, and it also enables claims to be processed quicker.
We would like to request that schools promote the online application form, rather than the paper application forms. We would also suggest that schools stop using existing paper applications. This will also help us to avoid duplicate paper applications being submitted by Schools and Parents/Carers.
Please note that there is a separate application form on the website for families who have no recourse to public funds.
Pupil Benefits Service
Since our blue tits disappeared everybody’s new favourite visitors have become the goldfinches. They definitely managed to fledge locally as we have enjoyed many juveniles having a feed-up with their parents. If you would like to attract some to your garden – try putting nyjer seeds out. They are a firm favourite with our colourful school visitors.
