We've been fund raising for Children in Need by wearing non-uniform for the day, with lots of Pudsey ears on show! We have received a total of £376.25 in donations.
- Girls Football Team
On Wednesday evening, our Girls Football Team played in the East Riding U11 Football Finals at South Hunsley School. After winning the local cluster tournament before half term, Driffield found the opposition much tougher.

Last Thursday, Mr Addy took 2 teams to play in our second Cluster Hockey Tournament of the year. Well done to Mr Addy, everybody who took part and congratulations to our burgundy team who won their group.

Y5 have learnt how the Sikh religion give their time in the community. In the hope of doing the same, Year 5 visited a local care home to read to the residents.
- Visitor to Year 3

Extreme Weather Arrangements
During extreme weather, when the site may be covered with snow or ice, we will only open the main gate on Bridlington Road and pupils will go straight into the school halls with their bags and coats. Pupils will then be collected by their teacher and escorted safely to their classrooms at 9am.
We would ask for your help in not bringing children to school before 8.50 where possible.
Should the occasion arise when we do not have enough staff on site to safely open we will make use of our text messaging service, website, Radio Humberside and Viking FM to make announcements.
