Well done to Mrs Orgill and the School Council for attaining bronze status on their School Council Award.

They have shown that the pupils operate a democratic system, know their roles and responsibilities and are able to influence changes that help to make our school a better place to learn and play.

They are now forging ahead with the criteria for the Silver Award.

Keep up all your good work around school.

Thursday February 5th

We have managed to keep the school open with a skeleton staff. All staff have attempted to get to school but many have been unable to do so because of the treacherous conditions in Derby and the surrounding area.

We will take into consideration the weather conditions later on today and consult with the Education Authority before making a final decision as to whether to close school tomorrow. All other primary schools in the area are closed.

We will endeavour to keep the school open but please refer to this website, Radio Derby and Ram FM for any changes that may occur.

School Closed Tuesday 3rd February 2009

One of the most difficult decisions to make is whether to keep school open or closed during the bad weather.

With the snow still falling, and following advice from the Met Office about freezing temperatures and more snow expected overnight I have decided to close school on Tuesday 3rd February 2009.

If you hear nothing further then expect school to re-open on Wednesday 4th February 2009. Any further closures will be published on this site and through Radio Derby.

Although I am sorry for any convenience this may cause, the safety of staff and pupils must be paramount, including on journeys to and from school.
