Previous events:

Mother's Day

We had a busy two days celebrating Mother's Day. Staff laid on afternoon tea while children enjoyed ice cream and pick and mix sweets as a treat. All of this for £1, what a bargain!

A big thank you to Mrs O'Connor and Mrs Kerry for organising and all the staff who pitched in to help set up, run and clear away.

Stay and Play

Thank you to all the parents who joined us for our Stay and Play. As you can see we had a fantastic time. It was great to spend time with you and for you to see all the lovely activities we have planned for the children.

Christmas Fayre

As always our Christmas Fayre was well attended. Classes planned different stalls and we had a lovely variety of crafts and treats as well as games to play. Well done to our raffle winners.

Waffle Afternoon

Many thanks to Mrs Walker and her team of helpers for another fantastic Waffle Afternoon. We raised enough money to keep our school guinea pigs in food and bedding for a while.

How great to see so many Dads/Grandads/Uncles/Important male role models for our Fathers Day Breakfast.

We had a lovely time together. All the men got a medal from their child for being so special.

Thanks for such a huge turnout.


Mrs Kershaw organised a lovely afternoon to celebrate our Spanish speaking families at Victoria. We ate food (manchego cheese and churros) and drank sangria (non-alcoholic!) and had a go at Flamenco dancing after watching Martina and her mum give a demonstration.

Here are some photos from the event.


We had a lovely couple of afternoons celebrating the important women in our children's lives.

Thank you to all the staff who worked so hard to make it a memorable afternoon and thank you to all the mums, aunties, grandparents who came along, we hope you enjoyed your special time.
