Jack (with help from Julia) checked the school Bees this week – doing so well we’ve had to add extra frames! Hoping for the Queen cells to allow us to split the hive so we have two – maybe more honey for us in the future?!
Very nice to have the achievements of the school in the local paper!
We are absolutely delighted that the recent report recognises that the school is Outstanding in all areas. Huge credit for this must go to all the Staff, Governors, Parents, Community and, of course, our brilliant children – all of whom make this school what it is.

On the 13th February 18 children went to The Lakes School to compete in the Key Steps Gymnastic competition. After weeks of hard work the children could finally show that they had learnt their difficult routines. We are still awaiting the results but we were all very proud of everyone’s effort on the day.
The Year 1 and 2 children visited St Mary’s church for a mock Christening lead by Rev Woodcock. Below are some pictures of the baby, the Parents and the God Parents.
Today, we welcomed our friends from Open the Book into our school Collective Worship: they re-enacted the scene where Jesus is taken prisoner, accused, condemned and crucified on the cross.
