From the 16th – 20th November we will be having a whole school Safety Week. During this time we will cover many aspects of our PSHE curriculum and also work relating to Anti Bullying Week and Road Safety Week. There will be school visits from the Fire Service, the Doncaster Road Safety Team, the NSPCC and a Traffic Police Officer.
We are launching a Road Safety poster competition today with prizes to be won! Posters can be drawn or painted. The theme for the poster is:
- Be Bright and Be Seen during the dark winter nights by wearing bright clothing, hi vis jackets/ bands etc.
- Keeping the school clear, advising parents not to park near schools for the safety of children. Zig Zag lines and parking restrictions etc.
The closing date for the poster competition is Friday 13th November.
I think it is safe to say they’re having fun!

Welcome back to the new school year. The children have been in a few days now and have settled really well into school with a lot of good work being produced already. All the building work is now completed and the school now looks much smarter with all the exterior windows replaced.
Please remember to check the calendar on the website regularly as this is where we put the dates for meetings and events coming up in school. This helps to keep all parents and family members informed throughout the school.
Parents’ Evenings will be on the 13th and 15th October. This is to discuss how your child has settled in to their new class and the targets and expectations for the year. Letters will go out nearer the time.
We are planning to hold a Christmas Fair on Wednesday 2nd December which will be organised by the school council. Details later in the term but if you have a small business that would be interested in running a stall please let us know.
The competition is now running to name the new House Teams that we have started this term. Each child will be in a house and will collect house points for good work, effort and attitude. On each Friday we will let the children know in assembly which house has won.
From this term we will be allowing Key Stage 2 children to bring in a piece of fruit for morning break. We will not be allowing biscuits or sweets. Key Stage 1 children already have fruit provided free of charge.
If you would like your child to continue to have school milk in Key Stage 2 then please click on the link below (this is the same link for anybody in Key Stage 1 who would like their child to have milk). You need to register with Cool Milk who will then contact us.
