This month the boys and girls were making an extra special effort with their Maths as this was the focus of our Star Pupil Awards. The awards recognise those who excel in Maths as well as those who make great strides to improve in the subject. We are delighted to congratulate the following winners for this month!

This month has also seen our lots of planting and environmental awareness work. This is part of our Green Flag Programme as we strive towards receiving the Biodiversity Flag. We say a big thank you to our Green Schools Committee which is led by Ms. Mary Everard and Ms. Laura Ralph. Part of the process is to design a poster with a slogan promoting biodiversity and care for our natural environment.
