Term Dates & Events






We were very lucky to have a visit from Mr Steve Plant, from the UK Space Agency. Steve wore a real space suit and told the children all about the planets in our solar system, and how rockets worked. We listened to the sounds that were recorded from a lunar module and then got to try some real space food! The space ice cream was yummy!.

Fundraising update - Thank you for all your support with our Christmas raffle; by donating prizes and buying tickets - and also coming to our stall at the Hillside Christmas Fayre.

We raised a grand total of £270.00! 

Thank you to everyone who donated food for the Trussell Trust Food bank. 

They were very appreciative of your generosity. 

Some of the children helped to pack the boxes - ready for collection.

“A high ratio of well-qualified staff work with the children.  They forge very effective partnerships with parents and other professionals, which means that all children, including disabled children, those who have special educational needs and communication difficulties, receive excellent support."
"The highly stimulating and extremely well-organised environment enables children to be independent and to initiate their own ideas."
