Welcome to the latest bulletin and news round-up…


Another busy week in school and hopefully the beginning of more Summery weather. It’s certainly been lovely to see the children enjoying being on the field, with all the extra play opportunities, space and freedom that brings.

We’ve taken the unusual step of sharing our challenging budget situation with stakeholders. We always try to be open and honest with our community and it seems only fair to share the prospects with you. This is certainly the most challenging period I have known in Headship and I know that my colleagues locally and across the country would concur with that. We’re not in the business of excuses and we hope you know us well enough to know that we’ll do all we can to maintain everything we have in our wonderful school.

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend when it comes…
