Our friendship bench has a new sign. It is a place for children to go if they would like to find a friend to play with. Our playground buddies will also monitor this bench to ensure everyone is included in play times should they wish.


Did you know that we have an Emergency Defibrillator at Hook Infant School. In the event of an emergency this can be accessed during school  office hours.


I am sure both staff and children are looking forward to this half term break. We hope the days will be longer and warmer when we return to school.

We will be having a busy second half of this spring term including celebrating Pancake Day, World Book Day (don’t forget to wear your pyjamas), Parent Consultations (7th and 9th March) as well as our Easter Craft events where we hope you will enjoy some cutting, sticking and gluing with your child in the week before the Easter holidays.

School reopens on Monday 20th February at 8.30 / 8.35am but in the meantime please enjoy a restful break.


Khadija W, Alexander B, Freya B, Joseph P-M, Memphis K, Azarius S, Immy C, Harriet F who were our Celebration Assembly Certificate winners this week.
