Every child in school designed a Christmas card for the Parliament at Christmas competition. We had some really good designs and our staff selected a small group of children’s designs to send through to be judged. We are very proud that one of our Year 5 children was selected as the overall winner of the competition, a fantastic achievement! His design is being sent out by Newark MP Robert Jenrick to wish a merry Christmas to his 40,000 constituents. Robert Jenrick came in to school to meet our finalists and the winner.
