School Newspaper

Our school newspaper ‘Apple Core News' is written and produced by our Press Gang team.


The Press Gang is made up of Year 5 and 6 pupils who meet once a week to discuss what news, events and achievements they feel should be shared with our school community. Each member chooses to take on the role of either reporter, editor, photographer.They are then given the opportunity to interview and photograph school visitors, pupils and members of staff. All the information they have collated is then used by the pupils to write and produce our pupil school newspaper.


We have a very dedicated team who enjoy putting the school newspaper together and issuing it for all to read.
