We have lots to plan for and do next year and we rely on the help and generosity of all our school families, friends, businesses and the local community.


  • We are currently seeking sponsorship of our new Sports Kit, if you are a local business or individual and would like to sponsor or part sponsor the new kit we would love you to get in touch with any of the current sitting members of the Friends Group listed below.


  • We are also pricing for work to be carried out on the P1 playground, including the removal, provision and installation of the fence and gate, if you are a qualified tradesperson and would like to quote for this work please get in touch with us (details below or contact school office)


Look out for text alerts about our new Uniform Recycling Scheme and the Sal Shoes appeal over the next few days.

Over the Summer Holidays remember to gather up all unwanted items of clothing, shoes, curtains etc and save them for our Cash For Clobber Scheme in school.


The Friends Group are also planning some exciting activities for Christmas so if you have broken crayons or crayons that you are clearing out please hold onto them until September and send them into school to be collected, you will be surprised what can be done with the unwanted broken bits!


We can’t do it without your help so if you want to get involved please do and check out our Facebook page- like and stay up to date with what the Friends Group are getting up to.
