Tempest Class Photographs

On Thursday 7th March, Tempest Photography will be visiting school to take class pictures. Please can children come to school in their full school uniform so that they look smart for the photographs.

World Book Day

We will be celebrating World Book day on Friday 8th March. Children can come to school dressed as their favourite book character. However, they must also bring to school a copy of the book with their character in!

Please don’t feel any pressure to wear a costume, just wear some something comfortable to read.

At 2pm, parents/grandparents are invited to come into school to read with their children. If you would like to attend, please click on the following link:


Parents Evening

I would like to invite you to attend our Parents’ Evening on Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th March. This will allow parents and teachers the opportunity to discuss pupils progress so far and to indicate future targets for individual pupils to work towards. The meetings will be on an interview basis of no longer than 10 minutes in order to see as many parents as possible. If you are unable to attend please contact your class teacher to arrange a meeting at a conveniently arranged time at a later date.

Please complete the following form by following the links below and return to school stating your preferred appointment slot by Monday 4th March.

You will receive your appointment time by Thursday 7th March. Please note that children in Year 3 to 6 will be finishing school at 3:00pm on these two dates. Many Thanks Mr Williams

Easter Bingo
Silver Smarties Fundraiser

The children have all been given a tube of Smarties. We are hoping that they will use the empty tube to collect 20p coins which they earn for doing jobs at home.

If you are happy for your child to take part in this fundraiser, please send the tube and money back to school as soon as possible. Please return in the plastic bag with the child’s name and class on the label.

Here is a selection of some very busy children earning their money! Da iawn pawb!
