Thank you to all our pupils who took part in the walk today. The weather was beautiful and their behaviour even better!  over 900 children took part in the walk around the locality.

Unfortunately we also had a few walking wounded who had to stay behind.

Please return all cards to school by the end of next week.

Sponsored Walk 2019

Children are bringing home their sponsored walk cards today.  We hope to do the walk on Thursday this week, weather permitting. All classes will take part with the younger children going on a shorter walk. Everyone can wear a tracksuit on Thursday and should bring a jacket in case it is cold.

Please return the forms to the class teacher after the walk. All unused cards should also be sent back so we can destroy them . The cards are printed on yellow paper to prevent  unauthorised copying and fraudulent collections.

Thank you for your continued support. All funds raised will go towards resources for the school.
