Children In Need


We raised £585.17!

We bounced and flipped our way to raise money for Pudsey with great success!






We are very pleased to announce that we have just achieved the

Gold Mark Sports Award.

Mrs Fitch has worked tirelessly during the past year to create opportunities for our children to participate in a wide range of sports both here at school and at off site events.

Thank you for your support with ferrying children around - the assessor was extremely impressed by the range of activities on offer in a school with only 42 children!

Well done to Mrs Fitch and the children!
