Dear Parents,


The past ten days have been such a wonderful celebration of our children and their talents.  It was great to see so many families at the Christmas plays last week and I am sure you felt as proud as we did of the children.  Thank you for the donations you made both to our chosen charity, Shelter and towards the new Key Stage 2 furniture.  Gift aid forms for FOFSA donations are available in the lobby if you would like to complete one.

The children in our school choir have demonstrated wonderful commitment over the last few weeks.  For the first time, I was invited to both the Loddon Valley carol concert and the Friendly Finches; I thoroughly enjoyed both festive celebrations. Our carol concert was a very special evening; it was wonderful to listen to children, staff and governors all playing instruments together.

I can’t thank Mrs Gan enough for her work leading all the music activities in School. We are incredibly fortunate to have such a talented Music teacher who is so dedicated and generous with her time.

Today I have enjoyed delivering Christmas cards to our neighbours with some children from our School Council. Thank you for being careful and considerate when parking near school.

As the Acting Head teacher I feel incredibly proud of everything we have achieved over the last term and I am looking forward to a successful 2018.  This progress would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of all the staff, govenors and children.  We have also received some wonderful parent support this term; we value your contributions and are pleased to be working so closely with you.

This week we said goodbye to Mr. Fisher and also James from St James' Church, we wish them both all the very best.  We hope we will see them in school again soon.

On behalf of all the staff I would like to thank you so much for your generous cards and gifts, your appreciation is very important to us. We wish you all a wonderful Christmas we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.
