This week in school …


Great to hear that so many children enjoyed their class trips and the school disco!

You are warmly welcome to join the Badger and Owl Classes for their Summer Production. There are three performances. The Rabbit and Squirrel Classes will be watching the Dress Rehearsal on Thursday 18 July and we would like to invite grandparents and families with Under-Fives to this performance only. There are limited tickets available for the other two performances, so please ring the school office to book your spaces. Please do not bring Under-Fives to these performances as the production is very long and the children have learnt lines and the songs to perform without interruption or distraction. Please can I remind everybody to be as quiet as possible to support every child?

We are thrilled to receive our Ofsted report and I am certain that you would like to join me in thanking everybody – children, governors, staff, parents, carers and volunteers – for helping to make Barningham CEVC such a fantastic school!

Polite Reminder: We have children in school with allergies to nuts – so please can you NOT send chocolate spread (Nutella) or sweet bars (Snickers) to keep these children safe.

We have recently received a generous donation from Taylor Wimpey to purchase new ICT resources for the school.
