There will be a prize for the brightest, most visible T-shirt design from each class! Entries to your class teacher by 21st June so our JRSOs can judge them before the holidays.  🚗

JRSO Stripes for 6 Success!

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Stripes for 6 challenges. We have counted everybody who entered and there was a total of 30 students that did enter, to our knowledge. Ms Henderson is going to donate £75 to the Brake Road Safety Charity which is enough to pay for 10 nursery schools to receive Brake Charity resources. This will help teach life-saving road safety skills to children under the age of 5! Post written by Magnus,Hannah & Anders

Meet the new Junior Road Safety Officers!

This year’s Junior Road Safety Officers are Hannah,  Ava,  Anders and Magnus.

This year I’m hoping to be a good example for the younger ones.  Anders.

This year I am looking forward to learning more about road safety. Magnus.

I’m looking forward to communicating with you all over glow.  Hannah.

I’m looking forward to working together in a group and seeing the ideas we will come up with.  Ava

Here we are with Elaine Skinley, the Road Safety Officer.

Our team got straight to work counting out how many reflectors were needed for each Primary class.  They will be quarantined until next week before being given out.  We hope they help to keep you safe on the darker nights!

Look out for more JRSO posts in the future!

Fantastic Fundraisers

Good morning everyone and welcome back.

I hope you have had a lovely, restful break.

It is lovely to see everyone coming in this morning, sharing news and looking happy to see their friends.

We had a super surprise from Michelle, Amy and Emily this morning. 

They had been doing some fundraising in the holidays and have bought the school some resources to support pupils with dyslexia! What a super way to start a term.  We really do have the best school community.

Michelle is also volunteering each Wednesday to help us with our school library.
