Reception Admissions September 2019

If your child is looking to join our school in Reception 2019, it is vital that you complete your application completed by 15th January or it is likely you miss out. Last year we had over 190 applications for just 90 places. Even with the extra class, we have more expressions of interest than we have places – YOU MUST APPLY! Attending our Nursery will have no impact on your application. Many parents mistakenly believe that a place in the Nursery = a place in Reception… it doesn’t!


Festive Jumper: Friday 14th December

Please wear normal school uniform, but swap the school sweater for a festive jumper. We will be collecting donations after our Christmas concerts next week and we will make a donation towards Save the Children from these donations. Therefore, there will be no need to send in extra money for Christmas jumper day. However, if you would like to make a donation to Save the Children we would suggest a donation of £1 per family, thank you.

Ready, Steady, Cook

We had a wonderful day in school last Monday with a KS2 ready steady cook competition in the morning and fitness and smoothie sessions for Reception and KS1 in the afternoon. The children learned about balanced meals and including all of the food groups to ensure that our bodies have enough vitamins and minerals to function properly. The teams created two delicious dishes tandoori Salmon, pilau rice and sag aloo and parmesan chicken, spring onion pasta and chunky saucey salad.
