Although we are not governed by the statutory holidays for schools, we follow the ESF schools calendar. During every year we have 5 teacher training days built into the calendar. This is in addition to the contact days with children. These CPD days are added onto our calendar not removed from the contact days with children.

Please find the school calendar for Abacus Calendar for 2018-2019  here. We also now have the Abacus Calendar for 2019-2020 available here.

Welcome Back

Welcome back to school, we hope you all had a restful holiday. The children seemed to settle back in well yesterday. We have a busy last term ahead with Story Sharing Days and the K1 Art Exhibition as well as Splash Day, which is one of our favourite days of the year. We hope the children have a fantastic last term and make great progress with their learning.

ART Exhibition

The K1 children are busy with all of their amazing art projects currently. We are very excited to be able to share all of the fantastic artwork with their parents on May 10th. Please keep this date free if you are a K1 parent to come and visit the exhibition.

Sports Day

We were very lucky that the weather held for Sports Day before Easter. Thank-you for attending and making it such fun for the children. Here are some photos of the day to share with you. Sports day photos.
