Foxes and Badgers

The Foxes and Badgers discovered a wolf trap in the playground today.... we can't decide whether Little Red Riding Hood managed to get away or not! This discovery inspired us to get writing straight away!

School open Tuesday 12th December

Good Evening


The school will be open as normal on Tuesday 12th December.


We would like to take this opportunity to remind anyone traveling to and from school to take extra care as the forecast is for very low temperatures overnight, with the strong possibility of ice patches in the morning. Although parts of the school grounds have been cleared of snow today, a significant amount of snow and ice remains.


Where possible, we ask for you to walk to school, rather than drive. The safety of our children, staff, parents, carers and visitors is our priority.


The school takes no responsibility for accidents on the site.


All children must be sent in with appropriate footwear (e.g. wellies), coats. We also recommend a hat, scarf and pair of gloves.


If there are changes overnight, we will update the school blog, website, local radio stations and the Oxfordshire County Council website, as well as send out a further email via ParentMail.


Best wishes

Police Visit

As part of road safety week, we had a visit from Helen, Archie's Mummy, who is a police lady.  We talked about what she does every day and and she showed us the different parts of her uniform.  She explained to us how important it is to wear a helmet when cycling or scooting.  She also told us to listen to the adults when we are crossing the road!

Road Safety Fun

Foundation Stage fun


We have been into the car park to look at where we should be walking.  We have also discussed the importance of wearing helmets when riding bikes and scooters.


We have been role-playing crossing the road in our outside area.



Road Safety Week

Road Safety Week began on Monday.  It started with members of ICC and our School Council patrolling the car park.   The School Council then lead a whole school assembly, where we were joined by our local MP John Howell. We were extremely proud of the School Councillors for their excellent presentation skills.  Well done!


Thank you for your ongoing support with the car park and we look forward to seeing you at our whole school family assembly this Friday 24th November.
