Dear Parents,


It was lovely to see so many parents Tuesday and Thursday for our Parent Consultations.  Thank you to our wonderful house captains who escorted parents to their appointments – we had some lovely comments from parents on their behaviour and professionalism!   They make us proud every day.


Thank you to everyone who took part in the Big Wheel and Walk challenge – Thank you Mr. Slack for organising this for us.

Year 5 – Walking Home Alone

When we return to school after Easter the children in Year 5 will be able to walk home alone.  If you wish for your child to do this you will need to collect and complete a form from the office.     

Before and After School Clubs

The new Summer Term clubs will start up after Easter, week commencing Monday 24th April.  Parents will find out shortly whether their child has secured a place in our clubs.   Please note if you do not receive a confirmatory email then unfortunately your child has NOT secured a place.

Updates from Miss Davies

We were blown away by the number of "eggstraordinary" dioramas. The time, creativity and effort put into them was "eggcellent". In fact, they were so amazing that the school council and I could not pick just one winner. Therefore, on this one occasion, all 33 entries are indeed winners and have all received a prize and a certificate. Thank you parents for all your support. It is very much appreciated as usual. 

One hundred and thirty children won an egg in the Easter raffle and these were delivered to the classrooms today. Huge thanks to the wonderful school council who sold tickets every morning at break time for 2 weeks. I would also like to say thank you to the five house captains who worked so hard escorting parents on parents afternoon. Thank you Phoebe, Maryam, Oliver, Arshman and Evelyn.


The class with the best attendance since September is Elm in Year 3. They will receive a movie afternoon after half term. 

Sports Update from Mr. Edwards

I have attached some flyers from our partnering sports club Old Ruts. They would like to tell you about their Girls only cricket sessions as well as the ECB's All Stars and Dynamos cricket sessions they'll be hosting for boys and girls aged 5 -11. Follow








this link here to find out more. Book before the 11tgh April for your chance to win 4 tickets for the Surrey mens blast match. They will also be hosting trials for their Boys and Girls football teams aged 5 - 15. If you are interested in getting your children involved in any of these please see the flyers attached.   


Calling all basketball fans! We have teamed up with the British Basketball League (BBL) to offer our pupils and their families the opportunity to attend the Basketball Play-off Finals at The O2, London on Sunday 14th May 2023. For your chance to experience the magic of Play-off Finals Day at a special rate please see the flyer attached on how to purchase your tickets and don't forget to use the schools unique code which is on the flyer.


On Monday we entered 2 teams into the MSSP Tag Rugby Development competition. The A team attended Mr Hunter's club on Monday after school and you could tell that all the practice had really paid off. They won 4 of their 6 games and finished 3rd in their group. The B team didn't do as well as they would've liked, but Mr Bracknell and I were so impressed with how they progressed and developed after each match. 


On Wednesday, we entered a year 4 team and a year 5/6 team into the MSSP football festival. They all came back to school covered in mud, but with huge smiles on their faces. They had a few draws, lots of wins and bagged some amazing goals along the way. Well done to all the children involved in these events. Photos can be found on our website by clicking here.
