the library and planetarium should be furnished over the Easter break and then your children will be able to enjoy the benefits of this great new facility.
As we try to meet our target for fundraising there are two ways in which you could help us:
Both of these donations would make a difference for your child.
I intend organising an official opening in September, however, I also plan to open up the library after school in June, to allow parents to come and see what our new building has to offer. I hope you will be able to join us; dates to follow.
There are other easy ways of supporting Winston, which cost nothing:

If you are experiencing specific financial difficulty preventing your child from accessing the facility and are not currently in receipt of Free School Meals please contact us to discuss the matter.
As a school we continue to invest in the provision of food at the school and are proud of the quality offer we are able to provide at a very reasonable price. Our everyday meal deal at £ 2.50* for a main meal, pudding and basic drink is excellent value for money and ensures your child gets well fed during their time with us. We work hard with our catering provider to minimise price increases and this is something we have been very successful with over the past 5 years.
Providing funds for you child via our online Tucasi system helps ensure they spend the money you provide at the school and access to this appears on the front page of our website.
Should you currently not be utilising the facility at the school but would like to view the provision or discuss the service I am willing to meet parents to by appointment via my email at
