Dear Parents and Carers,


Year 6 Leavers


A big WELL DONE to our fantastic Year 6 pupils who were so well-behaved during their leavers’ meal at Waheed’s on Tuesday and then did us proud with their super leavers’ assembly on Thursday. We wish them all the best as they leave us to start the next stage in their education at their secondary schools in September.

I would like to thank you for your continued support as we seek to improve attendance year on year.




The school year draws to a close. As ever, my thanks go to our incredibly committed staff who continue to work so tirelessly for the benefit of your children – they really do go ‘above and beyond’! Congratulations also to the children for their efforts this year.


We say goodbye to Mrs Dola (PPA cover), Mrs Mehtab, Miss Naz and Mrs Patel (all 1:1 classroom support assistants). We thank them for all their hard work and wish them all the best for the future.


The children return to school on Tuesday 5th September 2017 at 8.35am.


On behalf of all the staff and governors, I’d like to thank you for all your support this year. Have a fantastic summer holiday!


Best wishes
