Wiltshire Walk Safe Visit
Walk Safe, is Wiltshire's own child pedestrian training scheme, to meet the needs of school children living and travelling to school in Wiltshire.
As part of the Council's sustainable travel agenda, the emphasis is upon encouraging children to walk, scoot or cycle to school rather than use the car, 'Walk Safe' supports schools in their involvement with the Wiltshire Healthy Schools Programme making sure children receive sound pedestrian training and are able to experience traffic and roads in a controlled environment; helping them to become safe independent road users.

Children in Need - Marvellous Maths Day
On Friday 17th November we combined celebrating maths with raising money for Children in Need!
Last year we introduced our Marvellous Maths targets and our superhero children have been working very hard to improve their addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts. So, thank you very much children and parents for working so hard at home.

To commemorate this, a two minute silence was held followed by the names of the brave men who fell in both World Wars being read aloud. Rev Jo brought the service to an end with the Remembrance Prayer in which the children recite the worlds “we will remember them” making a promise not to forget all those who gave their lives in service.
