Welcome to our school
We are passionately committed to providing a high quality education for the children in our care so that every child does well here. As an inclusive school we aim to guide and support children so that they achieve their very best educationally, socially and physically in an environment that puts children’s needs at the top of the agenda and where parents feel confident that their children are safe and well cared for during their time with us.
J. Goddard Headteacher
We hope everyone has enjoyed the half term break and look forward to welcoming the children back on Tuesday 4th November. The coming half term will be busy especially with the build up to Christmas. The children have a lot to look forward to including sharing assemblies, concerts and the whole school trip to see the pantomime at the Alban Arena. The PTA are offering more opportunities for a social get together for parents and carers by hosting their regular coffee mornings and also a Wine, Cheese and Nibbles Evening on 14th November, more information for this event will follow shortly.
For parents with children due to start school in September 2015 the application process with Hertfordshire County Council opens on 10th November 2014. We have scheduled a number of tour dates for prospective parents to come and view the school. The dates are listed on the Admissions section of our website which is under the Office hyperlink at the top of this page. If you would like to book a place on one of the scheduled tours please call the school office on 01727 860304.
Welcome to the new children and families who have joined us this term. The children have been getting used to the routines of the school day with their new teachers and today the remainder of our Reception children have started in Apple and Lime classes and are settling well in their new classes.
Sports Day will be this Wednesday 16th July at 11am (if the weather is wet it will be held on Friday instead). The children will walk to the St. Albans High School for Girls playing field which is off Townsend Drive. If parents are able to attend they should meet us at the field where activities will start at 11am and this will be followed by a picnic lunch. Parents will be able to sign their child out after lunch if they wish to take them straight home, otherwise children will walk back to school for the remainder of the afternoon.
Thank you to our PTA for organising Saturday’s Summer Fair on what was a glorious day. Our thanks also to the many volunteers who gave their time on the day either helping to set up, run a stall or clear up afterwards. The PTA estimate that the Fair raised in the region of £2000 for school funds so we would like to thank everyone involved for their support.
