Friday 4th December

Well done to all the children who undertook their assessments last week; it was so positive for the children to share all the learning that has taken place during the Recovery Curriculum.

New Uniform

We hope you like the new uniform that the academy has provided for the children.  If your order came in slightly later, then your child’s jumper or cardigan will be in our second delivery.  We will let you know when they arrive. The children were all very enthusiastic to start wearing them and very proud of our new logo.

If you would like to order more uniform, please contact

Christmas Jumper Days

On Monday 7th December we will be having a Christmas Jumper Day, and the children will be engaging in a number of Christmas activities as we enter the festive season.  This will include recording a carol for the Trust Carol Service and photographing our festive activities. With current restrictions, if your child doesn’t have a Christmas jumper, we don’t want you to rush out and buy one: festive adaptations to an existing jumper are perfectly acceptable (and lots of fun to make). Please note that the children wear full normal uniform with their Christmas jumper. We are proposing that the children bring a donation of £1 on this day which we will donate to the Ladies of Steel as a thank you for all they have done for all the children and families in our community during this year.

Christmas Dinner Day

Children can also wear a Christmas jumper/accessory on Tuesday 15th December which will be Christmas dinner day in the academy.

Christmas Activities

This year, due to the Coronavirus we cannot allow children to bring Christmas cards and presents into school to share with friends and staff. We will be doing a lot of exciting Christmas activities, but we are unable to accept anything into school from home this year. Thank you for your support in this matter.

Action for Happiness Calendar

The Action for Happiness December calendar reminds us that random acts of kindness matter. We can all make lots of people happy during the festive season
