Copper Coin Collection Competition

This term we will once again be holding an inter-class copper coin collection competition. Which class can collect the most by weight? Please could you start collecting 1p and 2p coins for this and ask you friends and relatives if they can help too? Last time we raised over £300 for playground toys for the children and we'd like to do the same again this year.


Are you have a Spring clean or general sort out at home?  If so, then you can bring your unwanted clothing and shoes to school and they will be collected in return for money back to the school! Your eldest child will have brought home on Friday a Bag2School collection bag, so just place the items you wish to donate into these and place in the school foyer by the morning of Monday 14th May.   (

Items that can be donated include:

  •         Men’s, Ladies' and Children’s clothing
  •         Paired shoes (tied together or elastic band around)
  •         Handbags
  •         Hats
  •         Bags
  •         Scarves and ties
  •         Jewellery
  •         Lingerie
  •         Belts
  •         Soft toys  

And that are NOT accepted:

  •         Duvets, bedding, blankets and household linen
  •         Pillows and cushions
  •         Carpets, rugs and mats (including bath, shower and toilet mats)
  •         Curtains
  •         Towels
  •         Soiled, painted, ripped or wet clothing
