Dear Parents/Carers,


This week, our pupils who have not had a detention this term, visited Cineworld in Hinckley to watch a film and have a Munch Box treat (years five and six watched ‘Small Foot’ and years three and four saw ‘Sherlock Gnomes’).

As we were waiting to go in, a member of the public came over to ask which school we were from. He said that he was very impressed by the behaviour of the children as they were walking through The Crescent and whilst waiting to go in. This is always a lovely thing to hear and our pupils should feel proud of themselves.

Again, we have had some visitors to the school this week and they were impressed by our pupils who showed that they were engaged in their learning in the classes they saw and in the corridors where they opened doors, showing that they have good manners – they are a credit to you.


On Tuesday lunch break our intrepid litter pickers (Eco Warriors, School Council and IH) spent time tidying the school grounds and recycling plastics as part of the Great Big School Clean.
I would like to thank the children who did this for the school as well as the staff who supported this worthwhile activity: Mrs Sodiq, Mrs Lewis and Mrs Elwell. Well done all!
We already recycle our plastics in school and Mrs Lewis is very strict about it – we have had to rethink how we use packaging. Everyone has to do something to help the environment and our children felt that they were doing this by taking part in this National initiative which lasts from 23rd March to 23rd April.


Today, our pupils attended an Easter service at St John’s Church on Coventry Road as is now our tradition. Again, our pupils’ behaviour was impeccable with nearly 400 children on the move to and from the church.


Thank you to Mrs Elwell and our PTA for organising an Easter Raffle for the children. The number of prizes was brilliant – lots of work for an already busy person in the last week of term – but well worth it.
We hope you all have a lovely Easter break – this is my favourite time of year and no, it’s not because of the chocolate – well, maybe this is true...

Best wishes, Margaret Greig
