Ryley James in year 5 contributed the winning design but thank you everyone who added their own leaf to the gorilla.

Jeff Rich, world famous drummer from Status Quo, visited our school to offer not only a first-hand insight into the music industry (without doubt an area of interest to the majority of our pupils), but also an enjoyable and educational experience using percussion instruments.
Dear Children, Parents and Governors,
Wednesday will be my last day as headteacher of this ACE school.
I have been very fortunate to meet some wonderful people since joining the school in April 1989.
I would want to thank all those who have worked with me; children, parents, Governors and naturally all staff in whatever role. This school is about how we all support each other as a team rather than about any individual.
This support is exemplified at times of trouble. Personally, I greatly valued the support received when I underwent my liver transplant operation. I feel fortunate that, after such a difficult time, I have been able to return to work and choose my retirement date rather than being forced to give up by illness.
I can look back on many occasions where someone associated with the school has felt similarly about the level of support given. This is further highlighted by the caring attitude demonstrated by children towards each other and their commitment to charitable causes. The annual Charity Hour has always been a highlight. This year the collection for the Addenbrookes Liver Transplant Association was really well supported. (See over)
I have also been proud to be involved in so many residential and day field study visits. Over the years the children have never let us down and all have gained greatly from the wide range of experiences on offer.
This is a Church of England School and the Christian ethos is very important. The children understand the need to Achieve, Care and Enjoy (ACE). It sums up what a school such as this should be about.
I look forward to my retirement and wish everyone in and associated with the school, particularly Mr Neil Toplis, every success.
On Friday 15th February, we had an event in school called ‘charity hour’. This is where every child in our school has an hour to run their own stalls to raise money for a certain charity. This year we raised money for the Addenbrookes Liver Transplant Association. This was because our own Head Teacher, Mr Milbourne, had a liver transplant.
Without his transplant, he wouldn’t be here today. We are very grateful that his life was saved.During Charity Hour there were all sorts of different stalls varying from cake stalls to Pac-man. Some people had sponges thrown at them for the whole hour!
The stall I ran with 8 friends was a cake stall. We raised £64.70. The school raised £719.95 in that hour alone. Everyone had a lot of fun and enjoyed raising the money.

School Charity Collection
This year we have been collecting for ALTA (Addenbrookes Liver Transplant Association.
Collections began with in the summer of 2012 with a non-uniform day and collections at the Leavers’ Service which raised a total of £168.55
Collections at our Carol Services raised a further £179.50
Ticket sales from the Christmas Disco added a further £252.10
Charity hour was another enormous success!
We are grateful to all those who supported the recent sponsored tables test.
In addition to motivating some children to learn their tables a total of £605.20 was raised half of which went to the SHA and the other half added to our charity collection.
A previous payment of £50 was given directly to ALTA in July.
A further donation rounded the final total up to £2,000.
A trustee of ALTA received a cheque during the school assembly this morning
