Hello everyone!

Well this is the final goodbye to Year 1J form Mrs Jones, Mrs Jackson and Miss Allan. We can't believe that this is the end of the year and we are soooo sad we didn't get to finish year one with you. We have missed you all soooo much, you have all made Year 1J a truly amazing class and we wish you every success when you go into Year 2 in September.

We loved seeing all your lovely smiling faces this week, you are all getting so big. We really want to say a big well done for all the amazing work you have done during lockdown, and would also like to say a huge thank you to all your amazing parents for helping you with home learning and all of your activities. 

We hope you have a fabulous summer holiday and we will look forward to seeing you all in September. We will be there waving you on in Year 2. Miss you all and see you soon xxx

Exciting Music Scholarship Opportunity


We are really excited to inform you all that Side By Side Arts have managed to secure funding from the Big Local to allow them to provide 8 weeks of music scholarship to children in the Big Local Area. This will be for either piano, guitar or vocal tuition.

Side By Side Arts would like to offer up to 25 of these places to our pupils on a first come first serve basis.


Please find the Scholarship Agreement below – if you would be interested in securing a place for your child after reading this then please contact Stuart at


This is a fantastic opportunity to learn something new and a valuable way to fill in time during these weeks away from school and is an opportunity not to be missed so get in quick!


Scholarship Agreement


Scholarships available

·      Piano

·      Guitar

·      Vocal


About the scholarship

·      This scholarship will last for the duration of 8 x 30 minute group lessons which are scheduled on a weekly basis with the same teacher

·      Lessons will be held online via Zoom

·      For piano or guitar an instrument will be required at your home to enable you to practise and also to take part in the lesson. This does not have to be a full sized piano or of really good quality, a keyboard will be more than adequate

·      Vocal tuition will not require any instrument, just your voice

·      Before the scholarship commences and after the 8 week term you will be required to complete a short questionnaire



·      It is expected that each student will practise for a minimum of 10 minutes every day between lessons

·      Each student must be prompt to their lesson as lateness will not be made up at the end of the time slot.

·      If you can not make the lesson time please email to inform us. If you give more than 12 hours notice the lesson will be rescheduled to a different time. Less than this the lesson will be forfeited no alternate time will be offered.

·      Failure to attend two consecutive lessons without a valid reason will result in your scholarship being terminated

You've made it to half term! What a surreal time it has been but we have loved looking at all of your home learning photos over the last few weeks! It really does put smiles on our faces. As it's half term, we will not be setting any home learning tasks. We want you to rest, spend time with your family and make more memories during lockdown! In addition to this, we will not be speaking to parents next week and will continue making calls home week commencing 1st June. As you all know, we love making these phone calls to check to see how you and your family are so we'll look forward to speaking to you all again soon! We hope you have a fabulous half term! Keep safe and continue smiling!
