Our assembly theme this week was Resilience with our Wednesday Character Education theme being Co-operation.

We were proud to launch our library newsletter this week with lots of exciting news about how we are developing reading and a love of books throughout the academy.  

Concert on the Plaza

We look forward to welcoming parents and carers onto the Plaza on Wednesday 13th October at 1.30pm to share the songs from a range of decades that we have been practising in our music lessons. Please bring a picnic chair to sit on and we will hope for fine weather so umbrellas are not needed!

Parent Consultations

All children should have received an appointment for Parent Consultations next week. Please arrive for your allocated time, and we will direct you to your child’s classroom.

Marvellous Me

We currently use Marvellous Me to share wonderful news about our pupils and what they have been up to during school. If you need help to join, please speak to the academy office staff who can help get you signed up!

Halloween Disco

Halloween disco tickets are still available for Wednesday 20th October.

Online Safety

Please see below poster with a few safety tips and checking your parental controls on Netflix.


Congratulations to B1R who have won our Awesome Attendance competition this week!
