Our children today took time out of class to remember those who gave their lives in the Great War and World War 2.
We learnt about Frederick Read, 19 year old soldier, who came from West Tytherley and went to our school as a young boy. He was killed in action and many people within the village knew him well and missed him very much.
We met beside our war memorial, where Rebecca and Thomas read out the names of 21 soldiers. After one minutes silence, Mrs Ralf played the ‘last post’ and the children were very thoughtful. Thank you for all those who supported this event.
The school is in the process of developing our new improvement priorities for the next three years.
We have drafted these out for all parents to see and these can be viewed or downloaded from our website by clicking here

From its early beginnings, founded in 1911 by Douglas Macmillan, Macmillan Cancer Support has grown to become the largest cancer care and support charity in the UK.
As well as helping with the medical needs of people affected by cancer, Macmillan also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care. Macmillan Cancer Support’s goal is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer in the UK.
World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan Cancer Support’s flagship fundraising event. Each year, members of the general public host their own coffee morning and the donations received go towards Macmillan services. In addition we would like the children to be involved by donating a minimum of £1 to the charity and in return they can attend school on Wednesday in non-school uniform! For addition information on the coffee morning and information on how you can participate please contact Gabby Fletcher-Ralph on 01980 867 852 or via email on firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our children will be wearing Non-school uniform on that day in return for a £1.00 or more donation. Thank you all for your support.
The school recently joined together for a fantastic Sports Day down in the Village.
All the events were very well organised, from the traditional egg & spoon to the 300m sprint, giving every child the opportunity to participate and achieve.
Thanks to all the staff and parents for supporting this special event.
We all enjoyed a wonderful time raising money for Red Nose Day.
The School Council organised other children to run different events and they had a fun breaktime.
Many thanks to all children and parents who were involved.

Last Thursday, the School’s PTA ran its Christmas Bizarre.
Along with many stalls, tom-bolas and raffles, our Year 5/6 children ran their own stalls to raise money for the school. Each group was given a budget of £12 and had to work together to create and promote a product or service that they could sell at the Bizarre with the aim of making a profit.
Mr Warren said :
All the children were enthusiastic, worked really well together and each made a great contribution to the project. It really highlighted how resourceful our children can be.
Many thanks to both Miss Hodgson, Mrs McVeigh and Mrs Wareham for facilitating the fabulous activity.
