The Giving Machine

Dear parent, grandparent, friends and teachers,

Did you know that every time you shop online the school can receive a donation?  Register at www.thegivingmachine.co.uk and every purchase you make online from over 400 of your favourite shops will benefit the school. you just have to go to their website via the giving machine - it takes seconds I promise! You pay the same. Instead of the shop paying for google ad's etc they pay a commission to the giving machine and they pass it on to us. There are NO catches. This will really help in our efforts to provide new ICT equipment for the school.  Thank-You PTFA.

School are now collecting the tokens for BOX TOP BOOKS. Every box of nestle cereal (shreddies, cheerios etc) has a token on the top. Please bring them into school. Every 10 tokens buy our children a book. Thank you as always for your support.    PTFA

Year 4 star footballers of the future

Our Year 4 5-a-side team braved the elements after school and took part in a tournament held at Swanwick Sports College.

They played exceptionally well and lost a couple of close games against Coppice and Howitt Primary.

However, they showed unbelievable skill and teamwork to beat Morley Primary 3-1 and come 3rd overall.

Well done boys, your skill, sportsmanship, teamwork and attitude made me very proud to be your headteacher, even if it was freezing cold standing on the touch line!!

Thank you to all the parents who supported with lifts and stayed to support in the arctic conditions.
