Children’s Mental Health Week

Children’s Mental Health Week is taking place on 7-13 February 2022 and this year’s theme is Growing Together.

There will be an Assembly which will take place in classes and other activities throughout the week.

On Friday 11th Febraury children are invited to ‘Dress to Express’.
They can wear anything they like, their favourite outfit, dress up or colour. On this occasion we are not asking for donations so please do not send in any cash.

Safer Internet Day 2022

Safer Internet Day is coming next week and we will be taking part. This year the theme is ‘All Fun and Games?’ This is a great theme as there has been some issues with how the children treat each other online, both with their actions and words.  

Our Digital Leaders will be supporting classes in Key Stage 2 with their activities across the school, restrictions permitting.


There is currently a part time cleaner vacancy at our school alongside Teaching Vacancies across the Hawksmoor Learning Trust commencing in September. Please click on the link for more details on how to apply.
