A big thank you to everyone who attended the Frome Remembrance Parade last Sunday - well done to all of the children who were there in our St John's uniform or indeed other uniforms representing their groups such as rainbows, brownies, beavers and cubs. I was extremely proud of all of you.

Last week, we took some time to raise awareness of Anti-Bullying Week by wearing odd socks, reminding us that we are all unique - all different, all equal!

This week we have been thinking about remembrance and the symbol of the poppy worn by so many people at this time of the year. I would like to thank our House Captains for helping to sell poppies in school, and to everyone who has contributed to this year's Poppy Appeal.

Well done and thank you to Isobelle Lear who played 'The Last Post' beuatifully on the trumpet in Collective Worship this morning.

A rather belated welcome back to everyone! Apologies for the delay with our blogs this term; we have had a technical hitch, which is now sorted!

The calendar will be updated early this week, as will other documents, which need updating. I apologise for any inconveninece; we are working hard to rectify the situation.

I am delighted to see all of the children back looking smart and refreshed ready for a new term and indeed a new year. They have all been working very hard!
