Christmas Week – Week commencing 7th December 2020.
Unfortunately due to Covid we cannot hold our major fundraiser, The Christmas Bazaar. Instead we are organising a Christmas Week for the children to still enjoy the festive fun and games. The Christmas Bazaar is a major fundraiser for the school and an event which all children, staff and PTFA members look forward to! The Bazaar is a success because of the amazing support from all parents and carers during the weeks following up to the event. in 2019 this event raised over £2000 for the school.
