Class of the term – so far!
We are so proud of the children in Mrs Stothard’s class who are currently in the lead for achieving the highest attendance for the Spring Term with a level of 97.3%. Mrs Turner’s class are close behind with a level of 96.1% and with a full half term to go, there is a chance for all classes to catch up!
Football workshop
We are very proud of a group of Y1 & Y2 children who recently took part in a lunchtime football workshop run by Rotherham United Football Club. Their behaviour was outstanding and they were a credit to our school. We would like to say a special well done to William Walker, Charlie Brittain (Y2) and Ryan Gambles (Y1) who were selected to attend a Pre Academy Training Session with Rotherham United. Good luck to our future football stars!
Toilets
Mr Mottram has had the unpleasant task of unblocking the toilets (on more than one occasion) when children have used wet wipes from home, instead of the toilet paper provided. Therefore, we would politely ask that you do not send wet wipes to school with your child. Thank you.
