BOOK FAIR POSTPONED

Over the next few months many of our Year 5 children will be taking to the streets with PCSOs watching for dangerous parking and driving around our school. Our Junior PCSOs will be uniformed and highly visible, wanting to speak to parents/grandparents/childminders who endanger the lives of our pupils, parents and local residents by parking and driving recklessly around our school.
