Celebrating Sports Day

A very Big Well Done to everyone who participated in our Virtual Sports Day.  It was great seeing pictures of you all taking part in each of the events but most importantly having lots of fun.

Our top children were:

Tom H, Alfie H, Cody H & Ella W

I have put together a short video of all the pictures I have been sent.  Watch it below to see if you can find yourself.

Sports Day Update


Hello everyone, Mrs Overend again with the weekly update!!


We have come to the final week of our virtual sports day and I really hope you have thoroughly enjoyed taking part and learning new skills along the way.


By now everyone should have had the chance to give each of the 8 events a go and now it is your decision which 5 you would like to choose to complete on Saturday 13th June and record your results in the Healthy Kidz App.  You could even compare your results with a friend or relative to see who managed the best score in each event.


Over the last 14 days Tom H, Ella W and Henry W have accumulated the most points.


The top 3 children with the highest number of points since the start of using the app are:

Tom H, Ella W & Alfie H


Thanks to everyone who has sent in pictures so far of them taking part. 

Please take some of you participating during your Sports Day on the 13th so I can put them together in a celebration video along with all the others.

Safeguarding and Child Protection

Safeguarding our children is crucial to everything that we do as parents and teachers. It is central to our whole curriculum. Mrs Stewart leads this vital work in our school through her role as Designated Teacher in charge of Child Protection.

Throughout this continued lock down strained mental health has become a real concern. This is an issue that affects children and adults alike. To help draw attention to this we have posted the following two videos. We suggest that you take time and watch these along with your child. Thank you for watching.

Sports Day Update

We are now moving into Week 5 and this incoming week the focus will be to pick your best 5 events and work on each of them before sports day on 13th June.

Keep up the good work!

Primary 6 Parents


www. aqe.org.uk

Registration delayed until Thursday 14th May 2020

In the continuing uncertainty caused by Covid-19, AQE is endeavouring to provide clarity to P6 pupils and parents about the arrangements for the tests which are scheduled to take place during the next academic year. AQE’s first priority in planning for the assessments is the health and wellbeing of the pupils and staff involved.

Registration for parents of P6 children who will sit the AQE assessments in the Autumn was due to open on Wednesday 29th April 2020. We continue to have discussions with key stakeholders to ensure that the best possible provision is made for applicants and, to facilitate these discussions, registration will now open on Thursday 14th May.

Due to the circumstances caused by the continuing disruption of lockdown, AQE is moving completely to an online application process this year. It is hoped that the process will simplify the application procedure and will enable parents to upload electronic photographs, scanned birth certificates and pay online.

Please note that if you intend to apply for Access Arrangements you can indicate this on the online registration form, but all documentation relating to Access Arrangements will have to be submitted by post at a later date. 

Detailed information can be found on the Registration Section of this website, here. The online form will go live on the date registration opens.

When the lockdown restrictions are eased and the AQE office reopens, a printable version of the form will be available to complete and send by post. Schools, parents and pupils should continue to prepare for the assessments in the home environment.

Please keep checking the AQE website for updates.


Our staff have been working very hard to get all the ‘Home Learning Packs’ ready for the children.


You can keep up to date by reading our latest letters in 'School Information.' You will also find out any latest information in your child's class page too.


If you wish to contact Mr Hutchinson or any other member of staff at this time please send an e-mail to:




Best wishes to everyone. We look forward to seeing you all at school again very soon.
