We will break up for the summer holidays on Wednesday 23rd July 2014.
School will re-open to children on Tuesday 2nd September 2014.
Have a great holiday everyone!
We had a brilliant SMILE Week last week! Children took part in den-building, go-karting, dance, drumming, 3D printing, electricity workshops, minibeast workshops and lots more!

NATIONAL STRIKE DAY – THURSDAY 10Th JULY
You may have seen in the recent news that there are national strikes planned for Thursday 10th July involving 3 separate unions. These are the NUT, GMB and Unison. As a result some members of staff are supporting their union strike action. These staff have given me the appropriate notice of their intentions and I can now confirm that school will be partially open next Thursday. I am able to provide the normal staffing, education and care for just over two thirds of classes.
However the following classes will be closed on Thursday 10th July:
New Cross site Usher Street sit
Reception – RLG 2SL
Year 2 – 2SG & 2TM 6LJC
Year 6 – 6HK & 6LC
ALL OTHER CLASSES ARE OPEN ON BOTH SITES, INCLUDING ALL NURSERY SESSIONS.
Children whose classes are open are expected to attend school (even if their brother or sister’s class is closed). Next week we have very exciting plans for SMILE week; these activities will continue as normal next Thursday for those classes that are open.
The members of staff striking have given this matter a lot of thought and the school and governors respect their decision to strike. These staff are a mixture of support staff, regular PPA cover staff and teachers (this is because 3 unions are all taking action on the same day).
I appreciate any such strike causes disruption, but I also appreciate your support and understanding in this matter.
We will break up for the half-term holidays on 23rd May 2014.
