Blue Peter - Friday 13th Nov at 5:30pm

We thought you’d like to know that one of our pupils, Imogen, in Y6 will be starring on Blue Peter this week.

Imogen is a long-term user of the charity Living Paintings – a charity which helps blind and partially sighted children explore, learn and read. This charity is also supported by Children in Need.

The BBC film crew and the presenter, Richie, went to Living Paintings where they made a tactile and audio book for Imogen, subsequently visiting her at home during half term to present the book to her.
As part of the show they did a section on Imogen’s likes…her sister, Jasmin, in Y3 also features on the show.
I hear the girls loved their day – and we’re all very excited to see them on the TV.

Hope you all manage to see them: Friday 13th November 5:30pm.


Please see the photos below.


Friday 13th is also our Children in Need Mufti day in school. Please consider sending in a donation of £1 or £2 so that they can continue to support charities such as Living Pictures.





Message from Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service for Bonfire Night - Nov 2020

Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service would like to remind families that we are actively discouraging people from having bonfires and fireworks at home.  Firefighters do often get called out to bonfires out of control, and we know that fireworks also need to be used with great care.

However, we want families to have as safe a Bonfire Night as possible, so we are also sharing safety tips for those who choose to celebrate in this way at home.  This is to help avoid some of the hazards people can experience when using fireworks or having bonfires.  (Please see Bonfire night file attached below).

We hope everyone enjoys their Bonfire Night and shares our safety messages as widely as possible.

Thanks for your support,

Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service
