Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to Term 5! We have a multitude of events planned for the next six weeks which are listed here.

Today our Year 6 pupils and many staff, including myself, are heading off to our annual Blackland Farm residential trip. The weather forecast looks superb, thankfully. No more blasts of snow from the east – a memory of Term 4 that will stay with me for many years to come! We shall return on Friday, shattered but full of stories  of adventures in the wild. I must warn the parents, however, that there will be a LOT of washing!
