  • PTA 100 club:  This draw takes place on a monthly basis in assembly with a quarterly bonus draw.  It costs £12 per year to join and each month you have the chance to win either £5, £10 or £15 with a £50 prize each quarter.   There are still numbers available if you wish to join – please speak to the office for further details.


  • Ukulele & Guitar Lessons – Monday:  John McKay has some further availability on a Monday for anyone wishing to take up classical, rock, pop or folk guitar, or ukulele for Prep 1 & 2 children. If you would like a free trial lesson or any further information please contact him directly at:

  • All Smiles Toddler Group:  Mrs Taylor runs our toddler group on a Tuesday and Friday between 9.30am and 11am.  This is open to all pre-school children and is a lovely way to meet other families as part of the school community.  You are welcome to just pop along and can be assured of a very warm welcome.  Cost of £3.50 for one session or £5.00 if attending both.


  • Parents Parking:  Another polite reminder that the staff car park (Dereham Road) is not to be used before school by parents dropping off children.  Similarly, this car park should not be used for collecting children before 4.45pm.  This is for the health and safety of all and it is vitally important that this is adhered to.  Thank you for your assistance.
