Bake Off for Children In Need 2019    21.11.19

Last Friday we held our annual Bake Off for Children In Need. This is one of the highlights of our year.Well, it involves cake, so what's not to love? Lots of pupils (and their adult helpers) worked really hard to produce some AMAZING cakes. Our resident baking experts judge the nominations from each class until an overall winner was found. And then we had a bake sale so we could all have a taste. The really good news is that we raised £588 for Children In Need (and we were mentioned on tv on the night! Did you see it?)...

Christmas is traditionally a time of giving. Are you able to help other local families this year? Please read the poster below to find out more...

This will be treated in the strictest confidence and your details will not be used for any other purpose.
