The Sainsburys Active Kids scheme is back for 2016. If you shop at Sainsburys, please collect the tokens and send them in to school. Please also ask your family and friends to do the same.

This week, we are launching our new school wide ‘house’ system.
Each child will be placed into one of three houses: Emerald, Sapphire or Ruby. The house names have been selected to reflect the three colours on our school logo.
Children will be able to earn house points for following our school values, and also participate in events in house teams, including Sports Day. Each week, we will award the ‘House Point Trophy’ to the house with the highest number of points for that week.
At the beginning of the Summer Term we will elect House Captains. Our Year 5 children will be able to put their names forward for this prestigious role.
The Buckingham Park Cub Scout is having a 're-boot' with great plans to be an amazing Cub Scout Pack which will be fabulous fun and a BIG adventure.
Boys and girls ages between 8 and 10.5 are invited to come along to the special activity evening on Tuesday 19th January at 6pm. More details on the poster below.
