We are now half way through our spring term and we have had an excellent start to 2019.
Our sports teams, both boys and girls, have performed exceptionally well so far this year. Please see the back page for all of the details. I know that this will continue as we move towards the summer sports.
I wish all staff, students and families a very enjoyable half term break and look forward to seeing you all on Monday 18th February.
I hope that you enjoy this edition of Newswire and don’t forget to check our website, Facebook and Twitter for all the latest news and sport information.

Attendance and Punctuality
Please remember that your child needs to be on the school playground by 8.20am. They should not be on school premises before this unless they have a club as they will not be supervised. Please can you drop off your child at the school gates leading to the playground.
Children should not be dropped off at the front office. We are aware that children are ill on occasions but we would appreciate your support in encouraging your child to come to school if this is a mild illness such as a cold.
If your child is unwell please telephone the school office on 01234 267353 before 9am.
Children who get the minibus
If you need to contact Mr Powell please call 07542 943819.
The Member of Parliament for Bedford and Kempston, Mohammad Yasin visited the school last week to talk to the School Council. They asked him lots of questions about his job such as what inspired him to become an MP? What are the best and worst parts of his job? Also if he was a super hero what power would he have?
The pupils really enjoyed meeting him and we were delighted to welcome him to our school.
Year 4 went on a visit to Kings House to take part in a Play Day concert organised by Music for Bedford Borough (with a number of other schools).They performed what they had been learning in lessons on the keyboards and did extremely well. On their return to school, they also performed it to the rest of the school.
Year 2s visit to Hazard Alley was a big success. Pupils loved it as well as learning vital life skills.
