Science Blog

Mr Harper-Penrose and Mr Hanser, our two Science Leaders have set up an exciting Science Blog. I have added a link to it on the school blog’s home page (on the right).

The blog has details of all the fun, scientific things that are going on at each school. As well as keeping up to date with school science, you will be able to take part in scientific competitions from time to time. Don’t forget to follow the Science Blog for regular updates.

School Open on Monday

The replacement sewer pumps are now installed and working safely. We will open on Monday 19th January 2015 at the usual time.

We are very sorry for the considerable disruption that this has caused.

We look forward to seeing you all on Monday morning.

Whole school homework – week 2

Although the school has been closed, homework still has to be completed and returned on Wednesday 21st January 2015. Post it notes will not be accepted!

As reported in an article in the Teaching Times (on line), David Cameron believes that ‘British values include freedom, tolerance, respect for the rule of law, belief in personal and social responsibility and a respect for British institutions.’

Week 2 Homework - Whole School
Homework – Next week we would like you to look at what you regard as the best thing about being British, or what British values mean to you. What famous Briton from the past or present do you admire and what is it about them you like? It can take whatever form you want, it can be a poster, a written piece following research or a video for the blog. For KS2, you can look at anything or anyone but it, or they, must be British (Consider things and people past and present). For KS1 can you research a place in Britain that is special to you and your family. What makes that place special? What has happened in that place historically, industrially or culturally? What is the geography of that place?

Good luck and the best of British to you!

School Closure – update 2

Dear Parents and Carers,

Regrettably we can not open on Thursday as planned. We have currently have contractors working on the problem. They will continue to work through the weekend so that we can open on Monday 19th January 2015. We will continue to keep you informed.

You will understand that the safety of your children is our primary consideration. We are putting a range of things in place to ensure that your children are able to catch up with the lessons they missed this week. In the meantime the teachers are posting work for your children this week on their class blogs.

We have plans in place to ensure that regular, preventative maintenance is carried out on our sewer system in order to avoid this situation in the future.

We apologise again for the considerable disruption that this has caused.

School Closure Update

Unfortunately, the sewer problem is much more serious than we anticipated. The contractors have been working on the system all day and we now know that both sewage pumps have failed and cannot be repaired. We are doing everything within our power to resolve this as quickly, and safely, as we can.

We will not be able open the school to children until Thursday 15th January 2015. 

The teachers will post work for your children on their school blogs. They will maintain contact with you throughout the next two days.

We apologise for the considerable disruption that this is causing, however, this is completely beyond our control.
