Dear Parents,

Sports Day thank you

A huge thank you to our children, staff, parents and all those who came to support our sports day. We enjoyed glorious sunshine on Tuesday afternoon and appreciated how fortunate we are to have a school set in such beautiful rural surroundings. All the children participated and supported one another really well. We explored the Olympic and Paralympic values with the children and these were truly reflected: friendship, respect, excellence, determination, courage, equality, inspiration.

Thank you for the loan of gazebos and to Friends of the School for refreshments.
