Welcome back to school!

We have had a lovely first few days back at school. It’s been great to see how happy the children are and how keen they all are to learn.

You may have spotted our new outdoor gym equipment (if you haven’t yet seen it, there is a picture on Darwin’s Twitter page – click the link below.) It all looks very exciting!

Unfortunately, equipment of this size and nature is not suitable for our younger pupils, nor is it appropriate for free play at playtimes and we must ask that pupils do not play on it either before or after school. The equipment is intended to be used by Key Stage 2 children during supervised PE lessons. We understand that this will be disappointing news for the younger children but their time will come!

We hope that you all have a great weekend and we will see everyone on Monday! (We are very much looking forward to our first full week of the school year, next week!)

New Term September 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

We hope you have all had a lovely summer and a restful break. We are very much looking forward to welcoming the children back on Thursday to begin the new school year.

Our hope is that this academic year will be more ‘normal’ and we can be less restricted by COVID-19. We have attached an information sheet which we hope will clarify the latest advice on managing COVID-19 and provide some other key information which you may find helpful.

Enjoy the last few days of the holidays and see you Thursday.

End of Year Message

Dear Parents and Carers,

As we end another academic year, we would like to thank you all for your support. It has been a year with lots of changes but the children have coped admirably!

We wish you all a wonderful Summer and look forward to welcoming all the children back in September.

Take care,

Mrs Brotherhood & Mrs Evans

 

 

The Big Camp 2021

What can we say? We had the best time at our ‘Big Camp’ event. A massive thank you to the Royal Irish Regiment for running the activities on the Saturday and providing the children with their accommodation for the night. Also, thank you to our PTA who organised a delivery of Domino pizzas to end the event.

In what has been a pretty challenging 16 months, it was so great to be able to end the year on a high and hopefully create memories the children won’t forget!
