Upcoming Events

Friday 23rd October – Break the Rules Day

The first PFA event will be a Break the Rules day on Friday 23rd October where children can come to school breaking some of the rules that normally apply! Children can come to school breaking up to 6 of the rules listed and pay 50p per rule they would like to break! These type of events will now be available to view and pay for online securely via PTA-events:, this is a necessity for us given the current pandemic and handling of money and the need to move towards an online payment system which will hopefully make all our lives a bit easier, so please no payments via the school, all payments to be processed online


Half Term (w/c  26/10/20)

We are also offering children who would like to during the half term break, to take part in a voluntary pumpkin carving competition, where you can donate a £1 online ( and send your photos into us at  where we will judge the top 3 pumpkins! If your child would like to take part please donate your £1, get carving and send us your picture by 1st November and winners will be announced w/c 4th November!
