Head Teacher’s Blog

Well- it’s official- we are to be given the day’s holiday to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee. I have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand it is always good to have a day off- even if you spend it working at home- you can at least do so at your own speed and with […]

Fruit Only Days

The eco committee have been discussing the idea of having some fruit only days for snack.  We first discussed this during health week as a way of encouraging our 5 a day of fruit and veg.  Yesterday it caused some debate.  Each rep was to poll their pals to gauge opinion.  Next week the Eco committee hope  […]
