** Please remind your child if they are staying for an after-school activity before they come to school.

  • Percussion (Mondays)

If your child is unable to attend school please let us know either by ringing Mrs Magee in the office or send in an absence note on the day they return to school - there is a link underneath where you can print off a letter which you can use.


We would remind you to please inform us if your child has an infectious illness (such as chickenpox or shingles) as there is a child in school who could become seriously ill if they come into contact with such illnesses.

** SPORTS DAY - Y3 & 4: Thursday 7th June at 9:30 - 11am WEATHER PERMITTING**


  • Sprint (Running)
  • Egg & Spoon
  • Relay
  • Wellie throwing


Children are allowed to wear their PE kit to school on Sports Day.  You are very welcome to come along and support your child but please make sure that the finish line is kept clear. 

Seating will not be provided so please come prepared.


This year our Parent Support Group are going to be running a coffee stand on Sports Day where parents will be able to purchase tea, coffee, cold drinks and a treat, for a small cost.  The refreshments are for parents and visiting children only as pupils will already have had their snack in school, so no money should be brought by them.


In addition to this, one of our parents had kindly donated 3 signed Portadown Football Club shirts which we will also be raffling on the day.
