‘The best that I can be’

Dear Parents/ Carers,

I am sorry that you didn’t get a newsletter last week. I really missed the school whilst I was ill and away on the Headteacher’s conference. Thank you for all your concern and kind wishes.

Hockey Tournament

A group of year 5 pupils took part in a ‘Quick Sticks’ hockey tournament at Coopers Coburn school this week. They played very well, were excellently behaved and won a match. Well done- we are very proud of you.

New Uniform Samples

Our new suppliers ‘Red Oak Roller’ have sent us some samples of our school uniform. Please come and ask to look at the samples if you would like to see them before you buy. It is important that the jumpers are washed inside out and without fabric conditioner if they are to last a long time.


Thank you to all of you who have supported ‘Red Nose Day’, the Friends of Dame Tipping plant sale and our Lent games. Lent games will continue next week, so please send your spare change in with your children. All money from the Lent games goes to our sponsored child in The Gambia.
