We have been working hard to ensure we always show impeccable behaviour at our school, particularly on our school yard 🙂

Miss Moore was very pleased with us last week and thinks our lining up has been really good with clear person spaces in between each child! Well done!

We need to keep this up Year 4! Coach Matt has even commented on our behaviour on the field, he thinks we have been playing together really well and is impressed! Lets ensure next week is the same 🙂

What do you enjoy the most about your playtime?

Our School Aims!

Our school ethos and aims are very important and they are at the centre of everything we do 🙂

As part of our school aims, we promote an inclusive, happy and safe environment for all our children. Last week, we have been learning about Hinduism in our R.E lesson and finding out all about Puja! During the lesson we thought about how this linked to our school aims. We know that this links to leaning about the beliefs and values of different religions and cultures in order to understand and show respect. We know that our school is so lucky and special because we can use our range of religions and beliefs to learn from each other! 

Can you find our school aims on our fantastic website? Miss Stockton x
