Wear a Hat Day for Brain Tumour Research - Friday 25th March

Thank you so much for your generous donations, we have raised a fantastic £381.02


Covid Update

We now have confirmed cases in all classes.  Please continue to be vigilant; if your child is not feeling well, please keep them at home and test for covid.  If they are coughing or have a raised temperature, you should take them for a PCR test.

School Lunches

We have been notified by Dolce, the cost of school lunches will increase after the Easter holiday to £2.55 per meal. They have tried to absorb the increased costs for consumables but are unable to continue.


Upcoming Events

Please check our school website for information about future events, term dates, training days etc.


In the next two weeks…


Tuesday 29th March – “Plant a Tree for the Jubilee”

One member of each class has been invited to represent the school when the chair of ECDC plants a tree at Beechcroft in Brinkley to mark the platinum Jubilee.


Wednesday 30th March – Open Afternoon 2:45pm

Please make sure that home projects are back in school to share on Wednesday.  As long as our Covid rate does not increase dramatically, we would like to invite you to come and join us at 2:45pm.  There will be a chance for you to visit the classrooms and look at the children's projects from this half term.  There will also be a performance by our dance club at the end of the afternoon.  We are looking forward to welcoming you into school (please wear face coverings).


Thursday 31st March – Easter Service

Please come and join us for our Easter Service in the church.  We aim to start at 9:20 - we will be walking from school as soon as we are ready!  (Please wear face coverings)

Sponsored Circuits for the Pool

A massive thankyou to the children who took part in this event. The circuits were really challenging with multiple activities in each. Mrs Harris informs us that her class alone managed 15 between them which is amazing! Totals for the other classes are still being totted up, so we'll keep you updated!


A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has kindly donated in sponsorship. We are very aware of the many worthy causes currently that are asking for donations, and we have been blown away by your generosity.


The fundraising page alone has raised £840 to date and there are still more paper forms coming in! If you want to see our running total, click through to the page:

Please could any outstanding sponsorship be submitted online or via the office by the end of today (Friday 25th March)

We will update you with the final amount as soon as we have it, but this will provide a significant addition to the pool fund. Thankyou


The total is in from the February collection and all of your black bags raised £100!
