In the afternoon, the gate is open from 2.55.

Assembly

In years 2 to 6, the children meet in the hall on either a Monday or Tuesday afternoon for an assembly with Mr Kyndt. The focus of these assemblies is Growth Mindset. The children explore how their abilities are not set in stone but can be worked upon and improved. Set-backs are re-framed as new challenges to overcome, and failure can be used as a springboard to bigger and better things. Each week there is a different theme towards which the children can work over the course of the week.

On Friday afternoon we have our celebration assemblies. Year 1, 2 and 3 meet with Miss Henley and Year 4, 5 and 6 meet with Mr Aggus. Class teachers choose children who have worked towards their growth mindset target of the week.

Getting to School

To get to and from school, walking is definitely the best option! There are many benefits: it is healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, it respects nearby residents and parking regulations and, of course, it is good for the environment. Children may use the school bike racks to store their bikes and scooters. If you do need to travel by car, please park wisely and be aware of the permit only parking areas in the vicinity of the school.
