Message from Mr Anderton
My sincere thanks to you all. I hope everyone now has a great summer ahead and wish all Year 6 pupils a successful transition to their chosen Secondary School come September.
On Wednesday 20th July we held our annual sports day, the weather was fantastic and the sun was shining which added to what proved to be a fantastic afternoon. All the children participated with great enthusiasm and sporting spirit and made us all so PROUD. Thank you to all the staff who worked hard behind the scenes and a massive thank you to everyone who came to watch; the atmosphere was amazing. Mr Hill
