Congratulations from Wiltshire Council

We have high expectations of the children in our school and are proud of their achievements.

All Weather Track

The children are now able to make use of the field all year round with the addition of an all-weather track.

It also extends the children’s play area which means the playground is less congested – and in giving the children more area to run in again involves them in active play.

Extended Play Trail

There was great excitement in school last week as we watched our new play trail being installed on our top pitch.  The cemented in posts are now secure and it is all ready for the children to play on at break time one Monday.  It looks fantastic.  Huge thanks go to the PTFA who have been raising the money for this.
