Thank you for collecting Sainsbury’s active school vouchers. We collected over 3000 vouchers. With those vouchers we were able to get all this PE equipment, including balls, bean bags and tennis balls. I know that the children cannot wait to use them.
Following the latest Ofsted Inspection, we have been graded GOOD! You can read our full OFSTED report by following this link.
An example of how Reception children have been trying really hard to do something tricky (crossing the Monkey Bar) can be viewed on the video on the Reception Gallery.
Have a look, they are incredible!
