  • Maths Information Evening

  • Easter Celebration Mass

    Published on 23 April 2018

    Year 2 led us in a beutiful Easter Celebration Mass.  It was amazing to see how well the children spoke and were able to convey the message of this special time to all in attendance. 

    Their introduction to the Mass was beautiful:

    Welcome. Today is our Easter Mass when we celebrate because Jesus is risen from the dead. We are filled with hope and joy and we look for new life. Easter is a time of happiness when, after the sad story of Holy Week, we celebrate the fact that Jesus is risen.

    We remember that, as human beings we are free to choose how we live our lives. We recognise that sometimes we choose to do things that are wrong, things that harm ourselves and other people. With that in mind we turn towards God the father and ask for His forgiveness.

    Jesus’ resurrection shows us that nothing is impossible to God and this fills us with great hope. Hope that all people will have the chance to live life to the full and have a future free from poverty. Hope that through working together with others we can make the world a fairer, better place for everyone to live.


  • School Closure

    Published on 01 March 2018

    We are sorry to announce that due to the continued extreme and unpredictable conditions with the weather, we will not be opening the school tomorrow, Friday 2nd March 2018. Lincolnshire’s Multi-Agency County Group have advised all schools to consider whether it is safe and appropriate to open. After much consideration, we believe that we are unable to make the site safe for children and adults to access as well as the additional challenges faced as families and staff travel to and from school.  


    We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you but the safety of our pupils, staff and parents is paramount to us. We have made this decision early as we understand that for many parents this will have implications for child care. We hope you all stay safe and that the weather improves over the weekend so that we will see everyone back at school on Monday, 5th March 2018.

  • Sam Ruddock

    Published on 29 January 2018

    We were delighted that our old friend Sam Ruddock was able to join us for our assembly on Thursday.   Sam began by teaching us some pretty cool dance moves, however the key message from his assembly was all about keeping healthy. 

    Sam reminded us of the 4 things we all need in order to remain healthy: healthy eating, regular exercise, plenty of water and enough sleep.  Keep your eyes peeled for the legacy challenge which will be launched in school shortly as it contains plenty of healthy living challenges this year.
