Please remember, we ask that children are in school for 8.40am and ready for registration at 8.50am.

In order to promote better punctuality, we will enforce the school start time which is 8.50am. Hence, ALL doors will be closed at 8.50am prompt. Miss Reay will be in the yard to collect any latecomers who will be marked as late. The children will be taken to the school office to order their dinners and then taken to their respective classrooms. 

We appreciate your support, it is vital that children are in school, on time every day to ensure they are ready to learn. Even just five minutes late can have huge
consequences on their start to the day.

Christmas Cheer Poem

Tracy Lilley - Friday, December 18, 2015

Molly Emmett and Elizabeth Tingle from Y5 have written this lovely festive poem to help spread the Christmas Cheer!


Christmas Cheer


Upon the tree is a Christmas star

That can be seen from miles afar.

Christmas is the time of year

Where families laugh, love and cheer.


You may be visited by a fat old fella

So grab your candles from the cellar.

Look for him coming down your chimney.

A reindeer called Rudolph is leading his journey.


Snowballs splatting at your window.

Snow is covering your feet down below.

Hooray it’s snowing, lots of fun.

Wherever you look there’s no sign of sun.


Remember the time when Christ was born.

For when he was older he was crowned with thorns.

Then the rock was unrolled

And the Christmas story was retold.

Recycled Plastic Bottle Greenhouse

Tracy Lilley - Wednesday, December 09, 2015

We have been approached by Ecclesfield Community Gardens to help them build a Recycled Plastic Bottle Greenhouse!

They need our help in collecting 2litre plastic bottles, they need around 1,500 for each greenhouse!

All bottles need to be washed with their labels and lids removed. They need to be brought into school, via class or the main office, then they will be transported to the community garden location. 

Our aim is that pupils from the school will assist in the building of the greenhouse.

There will be a bin outside the front entrance of the school where you can deposit your plastic bottles.

You can begin bringing your bottles in from the 4th of December.

Christmas Tree Decoration Competition

Tracy Lilley - Thursday, December 03, 2015
Thank you very much to all those children who entered the Christmas Tree Decoration Competition! The decorations are fantastic and will look great on our Christmas tree in school. Our school governor Jim Walsh found it tricky to choose which decoration would win for each class, so well done to everyone.
