To access the report please go to ‘School’ and then  ‘About our school ‘ page and click on latest SIAMS report. Well done everyone!

“Thank you for the music! ” to the wonderful children in Oak Class at The Gateway Church in Yeovil on Wednesday 28th June. Lots of Courage, Perseverance and Friendship shown in an amazing evening! Lovely to see so many proud parents.



Last week our  collective worship visitors were Sathya with her daughter and nephew, who came to talk to us about Hinduism. Sathya showed us how Hindus pray and about Ganesha- a Hindu deity. The pictures of the wedding were very colourful and we heard about Holi, which  is the throwing and applying of coloured water and powders on friends and family.

Children from this school were evacuated to Thornford during the Second Word War. The children had a tour of the school from Stephanie, Danielle, John and Nequila. Then, we all went to see Matilda the musical in the west end. What a fabulous day we had!

After school, we played  a great game of football with mixed teams. Our thanks go to  Rich Goddard and Jerry Ridout for organising this.

Bon voyage and Au revoir!
