Foundation Stage Makeover !

We have decided to revamp the outside area for the Foundation Stage to improve this area for our youngest pupils. To begin with, we have removed the outside play equipment, much of which has seen better days! Next week, a fencing company will be coming in to install new fences so the area will be organised in a different way, with parent access to the back playground being diverted so that it doesn't go through this area.

A History of the last 25 Years!

Over the last twelve months, Mr Browning has been researching and writing a history of the school, covering the last twenty five years. Inspired by the centenary booklet that Mrs Denholm had written in 1986, Mr Browning has used school log books, head teacher reports and staff's personal accounts to put together a potted history. Please click here to see a pdf copy.
