Week beginning Monday 25th March 2024


The children in Year one had a fantastic time with Karen's pets and ponies on Friday. With lambs (just one week old), rabbits, chicks, ponies and more, they certainly had their work cut out! The children learned how to care for the animals and enjoyed the opportunity to handle them and groom them. Check out the photos on our school website in the gallery. You can also see some images of our comic relief fund raising efforts...more to follow!


On Monday next week, we are hosting our egg rolling competition. For your child to enter they need to bring a HARD-BOILED egg to school. There will be a first, second and third place prize awarded in each year group and prizes will be given courtesy of the PTA.


Also on Monday, we are sending a small group of children from Year 6 to an interschool ‘Public Speaking’ competition. This is a great opportunity for our children to build confidence and discuss matters that are important to them. This event is taking place with children from the South Croydon Learning Alliance (a group of local schools who work in collaboration) and we wish all children competing the best of luck.


On Tuesday, Reverend Elizabeth is joining our Reception cohort to teach them about the Easter story. We are looking forward to welcoming her into school.


School finishes for the Easter holidays on Thursday afternoon (28th) at normal time. There will be an assembly on the last day of term, at which we will announce the winners of our Eggceptional people competition and draw the prizes for the Rainbow Raffle. Tickets can be purchasesd on the PTA events page. Sales close on Tuesday 26th March. Thank you to all those who donated an item to create the winner’s hampers.  Summer term begins with an INSET Day on Monday 15th April and we look forward to welcoming back all children, at normal time on Tuesday 16th April.


SAVE THE DATE: After school on the 19th April, we will be holding a celebration of Eid event. At this event you could win a Lord Roberts on the Green voucher for afternoon tea for two, enjoy some delicious foods from local businesses including The Med Kitchen, Smokin' Grill and Steakhouse, Dawat and more, who have all offered to fry a huge number of samosas for us.  The Future Plate will also be offering declicious jollof rice and parents and community members will be cooking biryani and pilau (veg and non veg options) served warm. Cake Canvas will be doing a cake give away alongside other stalls offering personalised bookmarks, Henna tatoos and more! We would like to thank all of the organisations for supporting this community fundraising event and all of our parents and the PTA who are involved in organising this. It is set to be a great afternoon and we hope to see lots of you there!


Lastly, to all those celebrating, we wish you a Happy Easter and to everybody in our community we wish you a relaxing and restful break.  We look forward to welcoming everybody back for the Summer term on Tuesday 16th April.
