2017 - 2018
Children in our Foundation Stage have been enjoying the fantastic opportunity of 'Mini Wheelers'. They are having fun and increasing their self-confidence whilst learning to ride a bike safely. The use of balance bikes provides the balance first approach with the aim of transferring their skills to riding a pedal bike without the need of stabilisers.

Our penalty shoot out adventure at Preston North End...
Well done to the 7 children from Year 5 & 6 who enjoyed a fabulous afternoon at Deepdale on Saturday 1st October. They got the opportunity to watch Preston v Aston Villa and meet Deepdale duck. The best bit by far was going on the pitch at half time in front of 17,000 people to take penalties against Moss Side Primary School. The children felt very nervous but were so brave and did TCP proud. A once in a lifetime opportunity!
