  • The Big Half - UPDATE


    UPDATE - A HUGE thankyou to everyone that took part in The Big Half. All together we have raised a total of £1,272.00.


    On Sunday 4th March a group of teachers and parents are taking part in the Big Half.  It is a 13 mile run, starting near Tower Bridge and finishing in Greenwich.  Some of the teachers at school would like to raise money for two charities, Demelza Hospice Care for Children and All About Alie (Funding research into a cure for Motor Neurone Disease).  As well as fundraising for two very worthwhile causes, we hope that everyone's hard work and dedication will inspire our pupils and maybe encourage a few more people to get out and enjoy the benefits of keeping fit and feeling healthy.  Good luck to everyone taking part!

    ”This school continues to be good.


    The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Leaders and governors know the school well and share a desire for it to make a positive impact on the life of pupils. You and your team have built a strong community that encompasses staff, parents and the wider locality.


    At the heart of the school’s work is your drive to ensure that all pupils, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds, succeed academically. Governors, leaders and staff share your high aspirations. This drive is matched by leaders’ ambition to widen pupils’ access to enrichment opportunities in music, dance, art and sport. This is done through a broad and balanced curriculum and strengthened by links with local colleges and arts organisations. Leaders plan the curriculum carefully taking into account the needs and interests of the pupils. Pupils are happy to come to school and value the varied opportunities that they get……

  • Year 2 visit the rainforest!



    On Tuesday 16th January we were lucky enough to a visit from some rainforest animals, this visit linked in with our afternoon topic 'animals in their habitats'.

    Creatures that we saw included: a crab, snails, tree frogs, snakes, a huge tarantula and many more. We had a chance to touch and hold the creatures as well as watch them run around the cedar room! It was an experience that everyone enjoyed, my favourite part was being chosen to dress as a traditional rainforest native child, I got the chance to wear all the traditional dress and even had a try at hunting. It was a brilliant morning and has made me want to go to a rainforest to explore it myself!
