What a success!  Mrs Crossley read  a variety of stories and the children thoroughly enjoyed bringing in their teddies and a blanket.  The cookies and milk went down a treat too!



A big thank you to everyone who bought a cake or two from the cake stall on Monday.  We raised £61.00 which will go towards materials for the Carnival Club.



Well done to everyone who ‘Walked the Wight’ on Sunday.  It was lovely to see so many children bringing in their medals to show in school.  Medals were earned for taking part in any of the walking events to raise money for the Mountbatten Hospice. Please bring in your sponsor money to school as soon as possible.

Please be considerate to our neighbours when parking around the school. Below is an excerpt from an e-mail received last Friday, 13th May from Vecta House regarding the problems they face on a daily basis with parking.

We are having issues again with parents parking in the car park. This is about to become a building site so is not going to be a safe place for parents to park. I have put cones out today to stop parents from parking in the car park to reduce the amount of cars when the  building starts. A car with the registration number HW62 LBL has blocked the entrance to the drive today so I put a note on the car asking them to not park here. The lady who the car belongs to has just come into the scheme shouting and being verbally aggressive towards myself inform of one of our vulnerable residents. I tried to inform her that I was concerned of the children’s safety which she informed me was rubbish and I was being petty. There are plenty of places to park in the estate and using this car park causes issues for our other neighbours about the school as it is a bottle neck and it is already very dangerous with the cars that visit this area at drop off times.  This is not acceptable and any further issues will be forwarded to the Police.

I know you do not have any control over the parking of your parents but I felt you needed to be aware.
