Year 4 Nell Bank Residential

Year 4 had a FANTASTIC time on their Nell Bank residential this week. The children were impeccably behaved; a real credit to our school. They enjoyed activities including a bug hunt, pond dipping, walk to the famous ‘Cow and Calf’ and fish ‘n chips!

Check out some of the photos from their trip here:


Lightwater Valley trip

Yr5 and Yr6 children with fantastic attendance were treated to a trip to Lightwater Valley this week. They had a brilliant day out; enjoying the thrills of rides such as The Ultimate!



A swarm of bees has visited the New Cross Street playground today. An expert has confirmed that the bees are ok and has advised that all children and adults remain calm. As a precaution children will need to be collected via alternative entrances. Please see below for more details:

Nursery and Reception – Please collect from the Nursery front door.

Year 1 to Year 6 – Please collect from the bottom playground. There will be no access via the cycle path, so please enter the school grounds using the path near the crossing patrol (where Mr Gaffey stands).

Thank you for your support.
