A message from the Head of School…

This week the children have been taking part in the national week of ‘Random acts of kindness.’ It is celebrated by individuals, groups and organisations nationwide to encourage acts of kindness. Kindness is one of our key virtues in school and we believe it is important to encourage the children to consider what the virtue means to them, their families and friends, and how they see the virtue being demonstrated in the world around them. We hope that by promoting a reflective approach to personal qualities, our children will develop an understanding of
individual behaviour and how it helps to shape the community in which they love and work.
This week the children have also been telling their teachers and assistant teachers what they love about school. Please see some of their comments on our facebook page.

Book Fair
We would like to say a huge thank you to all our families for supporting our school book fair. We have raised £108 to spend on new books for our library. Our library is currently under taking a new makeover and will open on World Book Day. Reading is a key focus for our school this year and we are focusing on developing the children’s love of reading. We want to ensure that our children have access to high quality reading books that ignite their passion for reading.
