As mentioned in the February newsletter, a group of Dorset headteachers have formed a campaign called Worth Less aimed at getting a fairer funding in education.
They are getting increasingly worried about the financial position of Dorset schools and feel that parental support is crucial to getting action on this matter. You can read the letter sent to the Chancellor or the Exchequer here.
You can also look at the School Cuts website to see the likely effect on local schools’ future budgets.
Congratulations to our year 5 and year 6 athletes on their excellent 3rd place at the Purbeck and Christchurch Indoor Athletics finals.
The latest newsletter has been sent out – look here.
Members of the green club enjoyed making bird food-feeders in a variety of shapes.
Two treats today… Cinderella for the whole school in the hall, followed by a surprise helicopter visit. It was very exciting watching the helicopter arrive, but then all the children had a chance to sit in the cockpit.
We wish a happy and peaceful year ahead to all our children, parents, family and friends.

Too cold for birdwatching? Too windy for birdwatching? Too wet for birdwatching? No! Old-school hardcore birdwatching with years 3 & 5. Thanks again to Birds of Poole Harbour for organizing this super trip. See you next year!
Since setting up our link with a partner school in Uganda we have enjoyed visits to and fro, lovely learning opportunities for our children – spiritual, social and academic. We are very proud of this relationship and its place as a core part of our school. So far, our fundraising activities have helped raise over £20,000 for this most worthy cause. Thank you to all who have supported us over the years. You can see some of the Uganda stories here.
