Newsletter – 15th March 2019

After all your responses to the e-safety questionnaire, we (mostly Miss Brady) have been working hard in putting together all the information that you might need to help keep up to date with what’s going on in the world that the children experience online and, ultimately, keep them as safe and happy as possible.


We’ve looked at your questions, and the the results of our children’s survey too, and come up with what we think might answer them. Please have a look at our website  We’ll send out links on facebook and twitter too for easy access.


Red Nose Day was very well supported as always and plenty of money has been donated for this very good cause, well done all!


After all the sporting success we have celebrated recently it would be greedy to ask for more – but more we have. Our Year 5&6 girls completed their last football league match against Westborough Primary 3-0 and, in doing so, won the league! This means they will go on to play in the champion of champions final – hopefully at Roots Hall. A fantastic achievement earned through hard work while displaying a superb positive team spirit in every match – great work team!

Our table tennis team were in action at Friars this week and they too performed fantastically well winning with an overall team score of 9-2.


Our boys were also in football action at Thorpedene. Two very hard fought matches were played out and both ended with identical results, 4-2 wins all round.
