Time to celebrate - we are now part of the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership (ATLP). Our future looks incredibly bright working with the schools already in the trust and new ones joining.
Along with all the other primary and high schools in ATLP, we are holding a non-uniform day tomorrow in return for unwanted adult clothing and toiletries to donate to the Geoff Horsfiled Foundation. Many thanks in adavnce for supporting this very worthy charity.
With the pending snow forecast for this week I thought it would be helpful to remind parents of our procedures should we need to close the school.
At the earliest opportunity (this may be on the evening before or the morning), Mr Sutton and myself will carry out a risk assessment of the site and the surrounding roads and pavements to assess how safe the school site is and the journey to school. We will consult with Mrs Woodhouse, our Chair of Governors, to make a decision on whether we should close the school. When making the decision, we also have to consider if we have sufficient staff in school to ensure we are able to care for the children. Some of our staff travel a considerable distance to school.
If we do decide to close the school, I will notify the local authority, post a news item on our website and send a text at the earliest opportunity. Please wait for these notifications, rather than contatcting the school.
If you have any questions regarding our procedures, please contact the school office.
It was lovely to see over 150 parents, grandparents and other family members in school this morning working with their children making Christmas crafts.
Huge thank you to Miss Cumiskey for delivering an e-safety workshop to all of our visitors in the hall before they went off to the classrooms. This presentation and useful links is now on our Safegaurding page.

Come and join us this Friday for our Christmas Fayre - lots of fun games and stalls to enjoy as well as Santa reading stories to the children. 5.30-7.30pm
Reminder that we have an open session tomorrow at 9am for parents of children who will be starting school next September. If you know of anybody who would be interested in coming, please let them know. Many thanks. Mrs Norton.
To be in with a chance of winning a £5 voucher to spend at the book fair (5th-8th November) the children have been asked to recreate the front cover of their favourite book.
We had a fabulous morning at St George's Church celebrating our Harvest Festival. Rev Gary shared key messages to us about the importance of sharing and that even the smallest gester of kindness makes a difference. The Tamworth Foodbank stock is very low and so the fabulous generosity of our families will have a big impact on our community. Thank you parents for your kindness! See our gallery for images from the service.
WM was in Wednesday's Chamber of Commerce newsletter, which goes out to a number of businesses and organisations in our region. We are really broadening our community since joining ATLP!
We hope you like our new site, please have a look around and let us know what you think.
