It was a pleasure to welcome Nigel Leighton, Director of Environment and Neighbourhood services for East Riding Council to school this morning. He met with our Year 2 pupils, acompanying Cycling Steve and PCSO Freer on the latest seat belt safety session. Mr Leighton had arranged the visit after receiving letters from the pupils last […]

Following on from last week’s ‘boot camp’ activities, ERYC sports leaders have again been in school today, this time facilitatiating a range of disability games.

We all enjoyed getting into the festive spirt at our christmas dinner last Friday. Thank you to all the staff and Friends of School – its no easy feat feeding 250 hungry guests in one sitting!
