On Monday; Years 1, 2 and 6 were lucky enough to visit a Hindu temple (the Mandir), near Wembley, to find out more about their communal place of worship.

    Thank you to everybody who requested an appointment for one of our Parents’ Evenings this week. If you have any further questions, please arrange a follow up meeting with your child’s class teacher.

If you are able to walk with the children, please let your child’s teacher know as soon as possible. Thank you in advance.

    Party Bags

    If parents give out party bags at the end of the day, please may they not include party poppers.

    Fundraising for the School

    We are arranging a clothing collection to raise funds for the school after half term.  At the moment we have very little storage space and would ask that if you have any unwanted clothing you could store them for us. The clothes collection bags will be sent out week beginning 17th April and we ask if these can be brought into school on Monday 24th April as these will be collected on the Tuesday. We thank you in anticipation of receiving lots of bags of unwanted clothing, linens, shoes, bags and belts to raise money. 

    WE Day

    Some of our Year 6 children enjoyed a trip to Wembley Arena on Wednesday 22nd March, to watch various acts perform as well as listen to motivating speakers talks about different topics such as racism and equality.

    From this visit the children have learnt how they can make a change on both a local and a global scale.

    Thank you for all the donations of these vouchers – please continue to send them into school via your child’s book bag. One voucher will be issued in Sainsbury’s stores for every £10 spent. The more vouchers we receive – the more sports equipment we can purchase for our pupils to use.

    Year 3 and Year 4 packed lunches for their trip
