Summer reading challenge.

Well done to all the children who continued with their reading over the summer holidays. Special congratulations to Sopfia, Sophie, Molly, William, Julina, Lucas, Evie, Jimmy, Nivedha, Josh, Lily and Emma, our summer reading challenge winners, who have all received a fabulous new book for their efforts. Unfortunately, some of the children missed the photograph because they were busy reading! 

School Games Silver award

We are thrilled to have upgraded last year's Bronze School Games Mark to SIlver this year. Last year we made increases in the number of children participating in Level 2 Inter school competition and Level 3 County competition. We were very proud to come 3rd in the city for participation and success throughout the year in Derby City SSP's 'Road to Rio' competition and  also increased our percentages of children taking part in after school and lunchtime sports clubs. This year our focus will be on improving the quality of Level 1 Intra competition within school with the introduction of termly competition weeks. Well done everyone! Mrs Brundish
