It’s that time of year again! Cuxton’s Got Talent is back for it’s 4th year! We will be doing things slightly differently this year so time to let your imagination run wild. I am looking for video clips of performances - this can be a socially distanced collaboration or an individual entry. Please ask parents about this as all images will need to be shared publically so make sure you have their permission. Are you a budding artist? Have you created something fabulous you would like to share or maybe written a poem during this time? Whatever your talent is I would love to see it and hopefully share with the rest of the school. 

Can you send your entries to me at my school email: by 19th June.  Don’t forget to include your name class and brief description.


We hope you have all settled back into a routine well and are ready for the new term. It's so lovely to see children learning both at home and at school. Whatever decision you have made, it will be the right one for you, your child and your family and we will continue to support both at home and in school learning. The sun is shining so let's make the most of it! Please let me know if there is anything we can do to help.
