Our Walk to school scheme
This week has seen our walk to school programme extended to being available every day. As the week has progressed, we have seen an increase in numbers taking up this service. We hope that walking to school will help in lots of ways - encouraging our children to be active, helping parents to gain extra minutes in getting to work and also to reduce the car traffic around school. Please feel free to join Mr Morley and Mrs Danvers at the chip shop car park from 8.30am ready to leave at 8.40am. Nursery and reception parents if you want to join the walk with your child, then that is ok too.
And at the end of the week numbers increased to 33 even in the rain! Well done to all of our walkers, especially those who walked each day!
The result of our pupils completing their marathon and receiving sponsorship. Well done to our pupils and a big thank you to everyone who sponsored them. Spread the word that the village has a defibrillator located at school. Look out for information about a time to show the community how to use it.
The end of the Cross Country Season of competitions has now come to an end! Our children have turned out in all weathers on Saturday mornings to compete with hundreds of children from across the county as well our North West Leicestershire schools. Thank you to parents and grandparents who have made sure our school has had a good turn out at each event.
Well done to all of you!
