Brexit Update

We shall be closed for European Elections on 23rd May 2019. Possibly.

Extract from email

The following note is forwarded to you on behalf of Returning Officers in the District and Borough Councils:

You will have seen on the news that there is a possibility that European Parliamentary Elections may have to be held in the UK on Thursday 23 May 2019.

It is unlikely that anything will be known for certain until around 10 – 12 April by which time schools will be closed for Easter.

As part of contingency planning for this event, over the next two weeks, Elections Officers will be contacting any schools used for polling regarding their possible polling station requirements. 

Returning Officers appreciate that the uncertainty is not helpful but unfortunately this is not within their control.

Many thanks for your assistance.

John Henderson – Chief Executive


Looking Back

Y3 & Y4 Football

Well done to our Y3/4 children who competed this week at Cheadle – a very respectable score.


As always, I will always do my best to speak to you about any concerns you may have on the day so please feel free to approach me, either on the playground or book an appointment if you prefer.

Mr B Wilken


Dear Parents/Carers

As part of our Easter Celebrations we thought it would be fun to hold both an Easter Hat competition and Design an Egg competition.

All children are invited to either decorate a hat or a hard-boiled egg.  Hats can be a traditional bonnet or maybe a baseball cap or indeed decorating an old favourite dressing up hat, the choice is endless!  Eggs can be decorated as they wish, patterns, maybe a character or adding it to a background scene!  There are many ideas on websites so enjoy taking a look.

All decorated hats and eggs need to be brought into school on Wednesday 10th April when they will be judged by members of the PTFA.  Prizes will be given to the best in each class.

Children will parade their hats and display their eggs in the school hall and Parents/Carers are invited to join us.  Nursery children will show theirs at 2pm and the rest of the school at 2.30pm.  It is sure to be an egg-spectacular!


We very much look forward to seeing all the creations.
