Head of School Update - Friday 22nd October 2021

Welcome to the final Head of School Update for Term 1!


It's been a great week to end what has been a busy first term. The highlight of this week has certainly been our Curriculum Events. All of the pupils have been so excited to welcome you in to school this week and we hope you have enjoyed visiting your child's class.


Today, we painted the school red to raise awareness and money for St. Wilfirid's Hospice, who are celebrating their 40th Birthday. All of the pupils dressed up in something red - it was a great celebration and we have some photographs at the bottom of the update. Thank you for your generous donations today.


We held a 'Book Sale' this afternoon to help raise money for new equipment. Lots of children left with some new books for shelves at home. This has been really popular and some parents have asked if we will do this again, so look out for future dates. Thank you to Mrs Towsey, Mrs Trigwell and Mrs Clarke for organising this afternoon's event. 


Hopefully, you will have received a copy of our Autumn Newsletter, with news and information from across the school this term, as well as our Bulletin.


Photographs of our 'Stars of the Term' can be found in the Newsletter. Here is a list of our 'Stars of the Week' and 'Stars of the Term' for Term 1:
