We would like to remind all parents/carers that cars are not allowed into the school premises during dropping off and picking up times. This is a danger to children and parents. Thank you

Year 5 Netball

On Monday 7 of the Year 5 children took part in the Sports UK Netball Tournament. They had to play four games against other schools to reach the semi-finals-which they did. They then beat Fagley to reach the finals and went on to win the final against Blakehill. They won every match they played and didn’t concede 1 goal from any of the opposition. Well done guys.


 Forest Schools Year 5

We have been lucky enough to have the chance to take part in a Forest Schools taster session. The children had lots of fun this morning building dens and toasting marshmallows round a camp fire. They learnt loads of new skills and had a fantastic morning!


Public Health England (PHE) has informed us that measles is currently circulating in Bradford. Measles is extremely infectious and can be serious for some people. PHE and the local NHS has the following advice:

You can help protect yourself and your family by ensuring you’ve all received two doses of MMR vaccine in the past. Please take this opportunity to check your child’s red book, or contact your GP surgery to check if you’re unsure. The vaccine is routinely given at 1 year of age, with a second dose at around 3 years and 5 months, as part of the NHS Childhood Immunisation Programme.

If you, or any other children in your family, aren’t up-to-date with the vaccine, this can be arranged with your GP surgery.  We are encouraging all people in Bradford to do this now, since measles is circulating in the city. It is never too late to vaccinate because measles may have serious complications regardless of age.

Please remember to stay alert to the symptoms of measles, and if you have symptoms, stay at home and phone your GP or NHS 111 for advice. STAY AWAY from school, GP surgeries and A&E departments – because measles is extremely infectious, you could spread the illness to others. Symptoms include: high fever; sore, red, watery eyes; coughing; aching and feeling generally unwell; a blotchy red brown rash, which usually appears after the initial symptoms.
