The response to a potential Mums and Daughters evening was so positive that we are planning the event for the evening of Wednesday 11th February. Staff are planning a wonderful evening for you so keep an eye on our website for further details as they are confirmed.
News just in that twelve Yr 5 pupils will train to be Young Leaders in Sport on Thursday this week. Mr. Ashton is sending details out as quickly as possible. The football team are playing on Thursday after school. We all hope they dig deep to put on a credible performance.
On Friday Mr. Peacock and three other colleagues from Darlington schools will be spending the morning with us to look at our outstanding writing. They will observe the children in action, talk to staff and look at children's books. We hope, that by visiting us, they will take away lots of ideas to use in their schools.
And finally, on Friday afternoon Year 3 will be presenting their class assembly. The audience always enjoy it when a class leads the assembly and we hope that some Year 3 parents are able to join us too.
