staff did an excellent job, putting on an extremelly well received
The children were delighted that we decided to hold a non-uniform
day and they had a great time taking part in inter-house games
on the playground.
Everyone had an excellent time.
The children are pictured at the opening ceremony which has recently
been featured in The North Devon Journal.
2003 the school was able to open a new extension and this means
that we are now very lucky to have plenty of space and very
Since then we have been working very hard to raise money so
that we can develop our school grounds.
Our PTA has worked very hard for us and we have also been lucky
enough to receive a grant of nearly £5000 from NATWEST
A lot of this work took place during Summer 2005.
