Thank you to everybody for your donations of money and cakes today. The money we have raised will go to the charity ‘Kicks Count’ - their ‘Rainbow Baby Day’ is specifically to raise money for their ‘Finding a Rainbow Project’ which provides support to those who are pregnant following a loss.
A rainbow is something beautiful that follows a storm and while it doesn’t deny the storm, it offers beauty and hope of brighter days to come. A rainbow baby is a baby born following the loss of another baby. The image of a rainbow is used as it stems from the idea that a rainbow, symbolising hope and comfort, follows the storm of grief caused by a baby loss.
It was lovely to come into school this morning and see the children in their bright colours and to see the fabulous donations which you all sent in. Our two children are our ‘Rainbow Babies’ and we appreciate you all helping us support a cause which is close to our hearts.
Thank you again and have a lovely weekend,

Mrs and Mr Railston

Well,what a busy week back we've had! The children did a great job on sparkle days and we had some wonderful helpers come across too. The garden is looking so much better. There are still jobs to do. If you have any compost you can donate or hanging basket material we would really appreciate it, thank you.
The children starting reception class in September had their first transition visit this week with Mrs. Bourn and they all had a great afternoon, well done Tiddlers. We will be busy getting reports written and having meetings with you over the next few weeks as they prepare for the move. If you have any questions or concerns we are happy to help.
Today we have been taking part in rainbow baby day. The children have learnt "I can sing a rainbow" with makaton signs! Thank you for bringing in cakes and donations for this wonderful charity.
