Another busy week in the academy! Our assembly theme was Democracy on Monday which led to classes voting for their Academy Council members. We will announce who was elected next week, and they will have an important role in promoting Pupil Voice. We also continued with our Character Education theme of Caring.

Dates for your Diary

Macmillan Cake Stall

On Tuesday 28th September, we will be having a cake stall after school for Macmillan Cancer Support.  Any donations of cakes/sweet treats can be brought into the academy on the morning.  We thank you in anticipation for your support.


Thank you to all the children who have had excellent attendance, and a special well done to B2S for getting 100% last week and 6A are our top attenders this week.

Please remember we expect the children to be in each day, and you must call the academy office on 01642 483696 before school if your child is too ill to attend.


The children have been looking smart in their uniform and are so proud of our academy badge. Thank you for all your support in keeping your child in full uniform.

Please don’t forget to send in P.E. Kits on your child’s class P.E. days.
