Playground Leaders

Our Playground Leaders 2023/2024

The aim of Playground Leaders is to introduce and develop leadership skills in Yr 5 and 6 children by training them up and getting them to organise activities for other children in the playground. SASP has provided training for lunchtime supervisors and LSA’s to help with the organisation of this. One of the aims of the scheme is that it will increase the amount of physical activity undertaken during playtime and reduce the amount of anti-social behaviour.

School Closed Thursday 2nd November 2023

Myself and the Chair of Governors have carried out a risk assessment and due to the position of the school ,on a hill, and that last time we had a storm we lost 2 roofs and the barn behind is also very dangerous with loose metal sheeting, we have made the difficult decision to close tomorrow. We have also received information from DCC recommending this.
I would rather let you know now, than wait until the morning, so that you have more time to make arrangements.
The children's and your safety is of paramount importance, so if the storm is as bad as predicted please keep safe.
Class teachers will be in touch with some home schooling that you may wish to carry out tomorrow.
Thank you

Hello Schools
I'm pleased to say I have the crocus corms in hand now ready to drop them off to you. I will pass your details to some of my colleagues from
Torrington Rotary who will contact you to arrange the handover. We would hope this happens over the next couple of weeks, as I know your half term is near.
 I have attached the campaign pdf for you if you want to print this.

The Year 6 children had a super day at the devon Show, they had lots of fun and their behaviour was fantastic.One lady even came over from her stall to tell us how impressed she was with their manners.

They all had fun spending their money and having lots of freedom. They purchased bucket hats,sun glasses,sweets, fair rides and a dress!

We had to say no to taking a few goats back to School!
