Key 103 non-uniform in aid of Francis House Hospice
Whilst we realise that we have had a few non-uniform days/requests for donations recently, a number of children and parents have asked if we could do the Key 103 non-uniform day this Friday, 2nd May.
If you wish to take part children may come to school dressed as a superhero or wearing non-uniform as long as they make a donation to Francis House Hospice.

Both the A and B teams are playing away at Vernon on Tuesday 29th April. This will be our last game of the season so many thanks to Mr Lane for organising and coaching the team, to those of you who have come to support the team regardless of the weather and to all the children who have taken part this year. Congratulations to the A team who beat Pownall 4-1 in the last week of term.

School Dinners
Thank you to all parents who have adopted the new Dinner System and paid every Monday morning. Regrettably, however, there has been a lapse in payments and the school are now owed £223.35 in unpaid dinner monies. Please may I remind you that Dinner Order Forms are sent home with the children every Friday and they must be returned on Monday morning with the dinner order for that week/term, together with payment.

Thursday 22nd May – INSET day as school is being used as a Polling Station.
