And just like that….it is Advent!

We know that Advent is a time of preparation. Not just the preparation of putting up our decorations, buying food and gifts, but the preparation of our hearts to receive Jesus as he comes in to our world. 


Throughout Advent, The Posada will travel around school. 

This symbolises Mary and Joseph needing a ‘Place to call home.’ 

Children will take it in turns to give the weary travellers: Mary, Joseph and the donkey a place to stay and rest. The hosting child will light the Advent Candle, make a record of The Travellers’ Adventures in the Advent colouring book and enjoy the story: The Donkey’s Tale. 

The following day, the Travellers will come back to school. The hosting child will enjoy a chocolate from the Advent Calendar for looking after the visitiors so well and choose another family to host. 

You will be able to follow our Travellers daily. 

This makes us think about those who have not got a ‘Place to Call Home’ this Christmas. Additionally, we will be making donations to Caring Hands who will shelter the homeless over the Christmas Period, providing meals and warmth. 


Community Lunch takes place on the First Wednesday of every month during school term time @ 12.30pm. It is our way of welcoming and caring for our community. Those in attendance receive a roast dinner and are well looked after and entertained by our children.

The cost is £3 and we ask that bookings are made in advance, at least a week prior to the event by making contact with us when you may like to make a specific menu choice. Please do join us. Bookings can be made by

  • email:
  • telephone: 01795 842473
  • or calling in to the school office.

Dates for your diary: 

  • Wednesday 4th December: A special Christmas event!

We look forward to welcoming you 


The journey of the Posada in pictures…


Mary and Joseph enjoyed the hospitality of Tony’s family. Tony enjoyed reading ‘The Donkey’s Tale’ He lit the candle and shared the experience with his family. 


Our school seeks to be a happy place, with a welcoming atmosphere, built on mutual respect with confidence and understanding between parents, children, staff and governors.
