School news 10th May 2019

“Growing together in mind, body and spirit”

We had such a lovely time at Escot last week. Year 4 had an amazing time away from home for three days – which included getting very muddy in the swamp!

Important news

  • Saturday 11th May is our Family Sports Funday. More here.
  • On Monday we have our special Kik Plastic beach clean at 4:30pm. Kik Matthews (World Record holder) is cycling around the coast of the UK. We get to meet her and do a beach clean with her. Please meet in Lime Kiln car park. More here.
  • A reminder of the term dates for the next academic year here.
  • I will soon be looking at the classes for next year. If you have any strong views about friends that you would like your child to be with, please let me know by emailing This does not mean I can accommodate all requests!


  • I hope you have all read the letter on school budget cuts. This year for the Summer term I am asking all parents to make a £5 (per child, max £10) contribution towards resources for the school. We will add this to the SchoolComms payment system, or you can pay in the usual way at the office using cash or cheque (payable to DCC). This would be in addition to the swimming payment (if your child swims in the summer term).
  • Please check if you qualify for Pupil Premium funding to support your child here.
