Welcome back!

Thriving playground

Six weeks to grow and grow… the Infants’ playground now really is the jungle our kids requested.

Aw, school! Surely we all missed it just a little bit?

To remind you all what fantastic good times we have at Tufnell Park, the photo gallery for the Summer Fair is available at last – take a good, long look. And please also take a moment to read through the long list of local businesses who supported us. That’s in addition to the many, many parents, carers, friends and families who helped in so many ways. There are far too many to name you all, but the hardworking ladies at the Summer Fair spa asked for a special “thank you” to former pupil Nora Alshammary, who appeared out of nowhere with her friends and worked tirelessly to help shorten that never-ending queue.

The "donut" appears - having mutated into a brick-red rubberscape with dots, as voted by Cygnus kids.

And so to a new term. Elves have been at work in the Infants’ playground over the summer, completing their work at last with an undulating, dotty landscape – made of recycled rubber – under the beech tree. Governors have already been in to play on it, and we hope the children will enjoy it, too.

There are tons of events coming up in the first four weeks of school alone – beginning with the Adults’ 5K and 10K Fun Run on Friday 12th September.  Our new headteacher, Martin Scarborough, will be cheering us on and meeting parents informally at the Tufnell Park Tavern afterwards.  Keep your eye on the calendar and don’t forget to look in those PACT folders every day for more details.
