BBC Breakfast - Eddie Hall
The children in Year 6 had an amazing opportunity to be on BBC Breakfast with strongman Eddie Hall and Mike Bushell, sports presenter for the BBC.
Sainsbury's School Games
Previously we achieved the Sainsbury’s School Games Bronze Award for the variety of sporting activities the children in the school were participating in. Throughout last year we have been taking part in even more sporting competitions at both a local and national level, which has resulted in achieving the Silver Award for School Games. This is a tremendous award and very difficult for any primary school to attain due to the number of competitions and the variety of sporting opportunities the children must receive.
Well done to all the staff, parents and children that have made this award possible.

Healthy School Status
We are pleased to announce that last term our school achieved ‘Healthy School’ status. To support us in the achievement of this award, we would like to ask for your support by sending your child into school with ‘healthy snacks’ for break times and packed lunches. Healthy snacks include healthy cereal bars, chopped fruit and vegetables or money for snacks from the kitchen hatch. All food from our school kitchen is provided by Chartwells Catering, who continue to develop new recipes and source quality products from reputable and, where possible, local suppliers.
Children are offered choice and variety each and every day. Fresh potatoes, vegetables, salads, yoghurt, fruit platters and fresh milk are always available. All food served, meets our ‘healthy school’ status and sugar and fat content are monitored whilst maintaining flavour.
