Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.


We enjoyed two musical recitals this week, with choir performing at the Primary Choir Festival on Monday evening and a range of talented pianists, recorder players and brass instrumentalists performing at our concert for Miss Natalia on Thursday. It was fantastic to be reminded of just how much dedication and hard work (from parents, staff and most of all pupils) goes into such inspiring performances, and we hope that the younger children were spurred on to enjoy instrumental music when they get to Key Stage 2.

It was wonderful to see the super creations that have been entered for the Royal Academy Young Artists Summer Show; thank you for supporting your children in using their artistic skills beyond school.

We hope that our families have a lovely Easter break; we look forward to welcoming you back on Monday 15th April from 8.40am.

Christian Vision

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, by encouraging one another.

Hebrews 10:24-25

As we move through Holy Week, having begun last Sunday, Palm Sunday, and ending on Easter Day, we are reminded that the death and resurrection of Jesus was the final part of God’s plan to overcome the bad things that trouble all humanity – they are the root cause of all that is wrong in our world.

As Christians, we believe that, through Jesus’ death and resurrection, a way opened up for us as individuals to have a relationship with God and begin to tackle the wrongs in our world. We believe that Jesus’ death and resurrection makes a difference to both ourselves and society. That is why Holy Week is so important – it is the week when everything changed! This time of year is so important in reminding us of what Jesus went through for us and of how much he loves us. This should always spur us on to encourage one another and to show love and good deeds in all we do and say.

For I know that my redeemer lives, and at the last he will stand upon the earth.

Job 19:25

New Emotional Wellbeing Website for Young People and Families

A new NHS website, packed with emotional wellbeing and mental health information and resources, has been launched to help young people and families, as well as professionals working with them, to navigate support options.

NCL Waiting Room was produced with the help and input of young people, families and professionals. It aims to be a ‘one-stop shop’ for information on specialist mental health services, community groups, emotional wellbeing and self-care resources.

It allows young people and their parents or carers to search for, filter and share resources based on their needs and preferences.

NCL Waiting Room will continue to grow and develop, so watch this space for more details. You can visit the website here and try out the Support Hub resource navigation feature here.

If you have any feedback on the website, you can do this on the relevant pages of the site, or email
