Gold Mark Award 2015/2016

I am extremely pleased to announce we have been awarded Gold in the Sainsbury's School Games scheme. All of the staff and children in school work very hard to achieve this. Without the support of parents, it goes without saying, this wouldn't be possible. 

Below, you will find a link to the Sainsbury’s School Games site, an initiative set up to motivate children to get involved in sport.
