Christmas performances

As you are hopefully aware, children in Willow and Birch will be doing a joint nativity performance this year. This is taking place in Bicton Church on the morning of Wednesday 13th December – start time to be confirmed.

Children in Maple, Rowan and Oak are doing two performances of ‘The Magical Christmas Jigsaw.’ Both performances are in school on the evenings of Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th starting at 6:00 pm. Further details regarding timings and tickets for the KS2 performances will follow next week.

Thank you in advance for your support in helping your child learn song lyrics or their speaking parts!

Children In Need Grand Total

Thank you for the donations for wearing non-uniform on Friday and for the cake sale. We raised a grand total of £269.50, including £36 paid via our JustGiving page, which is an amazing effort. Well done everyone!


Parking – polite reminder

Please do not block in other vehicles at the end of the school day, including staff cars, as this prevents people getting out of their parking space and can make them late getting to their next destination. Thank you

The survey closes on Wednesday 6 December.
