Weekly update Thursday 28th September 2023

Our Vision
We believe that our children should have the aspiration and opportunity to ‘Live life in all its fullness and ‘Shine like stars in the sky’.
New this week…
Harvest Festival Donations
Thank you to those who joined us for our harvest festival this morning. It was great to see such a full church and we hope you enjoyed learning about the spread of food around the world. In school this week, we are collecting food and financial donations for the food bank. If you wish to help, please take food donations to your class teacher and financial donations to the school office.
We welcomed Ofsted into school on Tuesday this week, who spoke to many of our pupils and we took great pride in sharing our school with them. We would like to thank everyone for their positive contribution to the inspection this week.  We feel very well supported by our community.
Website and Email Communication
Following on from the information we provided last week, we are continuing to investigate website and email communication.  These problems do not lie with school but with the website provider and Microsoft.  Thank you for your patience.
