World Book Day - 4th March 2021

Across the school, we celebrated World Book Day in style!  Many of the teachers even dressed up too! Have a look at the press article below to see how we look. You will also be able to see some pictures from other schools in our trust. 

Red Nose Day 2021

This years Red Nose Day will take place on Friday 19th March.  The theme this year is cheering the nation up through laughter.  Children can come into school wearing their own clothes, making sure they include an item that is red.  Children can also wear any Red Nose Day merch e.g. red noses.  Could we please ask for a donation of £1 for Comic Relief, this can be made through ParentPay. 

Accessing COVID-19 Tests

The fastest way to get a test result is to go to a testing site. Individuals will need a pre-booked appointment or they will not be given a test. People can also order home test kits to be sent directly to them. To book an appointment or order a home kit, please visit:

These routes remain the primary channels for any individuals displaying coronavirus symptoms to get a test.
