  • UNICEF SHOESHARE APPEAL


    If your child's school shoes are getting a
    little snug and you plan to replace
    for September, please donate them to
    help other children around the world
    to access their right to an education.

    Please send children in on the last day
    of school with alternative footwear for
    the journey home and we will deliver our
    total collection to Clarks of Rayleigh.

    Last year we collected 145 pairs of shoes.
    Follow the link below and help us
    to beat that total!

  • Internet Audit
    https://forms.gle/DnNzrUcNT6heasCa8

    Could I please ask that parents take 5-10 minutes to complete an audit about how they currently access information about the school and the use of the internet at home. 

    I am hoping this will identify areas where we can improve communicating with you. 

    You can find the audit here: https://forms.gle/9GgZmqwaJFa6W8VC7 or click on the picture above. It can also be found on our Facebook and Twitter account pages. 
    Many thanks in advance.

  • Renaissance Champion School
    We are a Renaissance Champion School!
    http://www.renlearn.co.uk/customers/recognition/
    Miss Sharman and all the staff and children have been doing so well with Accelerated Reader this year  (seeing as we only started in September) that we have been selected to be a Champion school. 

    Did you know you can be emailed every time your child takes a quiz at school with their results? Did you know you can log in to view their past results and which books they have read? See the class teacher if you need your log in details again.
