Laurel Burch was an American artist, designer and businesswoman. She was born on December 31, 1945 and died on September 13, 2007.  Laurel Burch used a magical, brilliant palette of carefully blended colors to achieve her incredibly luminous artwork. She was a self-taught artist who is best known for her designs of colourful cats, Native American inspired horses and birds from the tropics, to the simple dove. Below are just a few examples of her work.

We have a shared library with many interesting books. Children are encouraged  to use it.





Physical Education takes place twice a week. It is very important that PE kits are kept in school at all times. Please mark each item clearly - that includes plimsolls as it can quite difficult for your child to find them when they are all changing at once.

We have three school trips a year, one each term.
