Drumroll, please… clubs are back and better than ever! We are starting the year by launching a selection of clubs for KS2 (Year 3, 4, 5 and 6) that will run ALL YEAR - what an opportunity! By joining one of these longer-running clubs, children will be able to build up their skills and be able to use them in competitions, performances and other celebrations! Apply using the Google Form being sent to all families with children in Year 3 - 6.


Are you in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2 or just feel sad that there isn’t the right club for you? Don’t worry! We will be running lots more clubs in the Spring and Summer term, following our usual ‘6 week block’ model.

Head Lice

As mentioned in our ParentMail message earlier in the week, we have been informed that there are currently cases of head lice in several year groups. Head lice are very common in children and can cause itching and irritation. Please speak to your local pharmacist or read the NHS guidance here if you think your child may be affected. You do not need to speak to your doctor about head lice.
