Big Pedal

The challenge runs from 20th—31st March and we would love everyone to be involved. The children will need to cycle /scoot to school to earn points.

Our best 5 days in the challenge will deter-mine our final position. We will be com-peting against other schools across the UK and if we clock up the most bike and scoot-er points we will win!

School Funding Action

You will be aware that all schools in the area are facing significant budget cuts under the revised National Funding Formula. There is a government consultation currently underway, this closes on 22nd March so there is time to respond. You can find helpful information about this, including a link to complete the consultation, here http://www.fairfundingforallschools.org/.

We are very hopeful that the consultation process will lead to a rethink by the government.

 

Netball

Our netball team completed their fixtures for the season with a 3-2 loss to Holly Park here on Thursday. The team has done really well and improved so much over the time they have been together. They have been great ambassadors for our school with their sporting attitude and great team spirit. Well done to all of them! Next term we are going to have an after-school net-ball club so that more children can enjoy this great team game.
