House Points Winners


Well done to all members of Red house (Faringdon) who were the house point winners for the spring term. They earned the most house points and enjoyed a cupcake party.







End of Spring Term


It is wonderful to finish the spring term with everyone feeling very excited about the summer term and fully moving into our new building. We have started to slowly move into the new premises and the nursery children have been enjoying their new room and facilities. Over the course of the summer term the builders will continue to work on the outside areas and then we can move in completely. By the end of the summer term we will be hosting an official opening which will give parents the opportunity to look around the new facilities. We are going to start the summer term with an great competition for the children to come up with a name for our building. The lucky winner with the most imaginative name will play an important role in the opening ceremony. I am sure that many of you will remember the old building and the final part of that building is being demolished over the Easter break. We have waited a long time for our school to be finished and I can absolutely state that you will not be disappointed with the end result.

I hope that you all have a restful break and enjoy quality time with families and friends. I look forward to welcoming your children back to school on Tuesday 30th April.

Brandina Day - Wednesday 10th April
