Headteacher Updates

Dear Parents

The daffodils are waking up outside our school and, like the daffodils, we look forward to the warmer months with hope.

Thank you for all your support this half term. I am not sure whether you are looking forward to half term or not, but we break up this Friday and return on Monday 22nd February. These are strange times, and it must feel very different for those of you who are working from home and trying to oversee your children's learning. Thank you for everything you have done. Let us hope that we get this virus under control and we get our children back in school soon!

The efforts you have made, and the terrific work of school staff leave me in no doubt that we are doing our very best to make sure that the children, 'Learn, enjoy, achieve'-even in a pandemic.


I would like to say a huge 'Well done' to Kitty Barker. She has raised over £300 for cancer research by making and selling hairbands on her sewing machine. Mr Aldridge and I will be needing one soon, if the barbers don't re-open!

Meanwhile, Ryan Fletcher has done a charity head shave for cancer research and his total currently stands at £700 so far.

Well done- we are proud of you!


I am delighted to say we are supporting the Brick again, by taking part in their poetry competition in March. Mrs Heaton will be in touch with further details. In the meantime,if you can spare any items for donation, I will happily drop them off.It's cold out there and many people have no homes. Others are reliant on food banks to make sure their children are fed. We can do our bit to make sure no-one goes hungry in our town.


We hope you and the children enjoy our celebrations tomorrow. It promises to be a fun day, with an extra treat of a show from the zany Taz-provided free as a thank you, from school funds.

Take care, stay safe and look out for each other.

We will be together again soon.

Mr Gaskill
