  • Celebrating World Book Day

    We had a fantastic day, sharing books, reading, hearing stories and simply enjoying the wonderful world of books. Most of all the staff and children loved dressing up as their favourite characters, and as usual they looked absolutely amazing!

  • Visit from Ofsted

    1st Mar 2019

    On Thursday 28th February we had our visit from Ofsted. The report should become public in approximately two weeks. All families will be given a copy and it will also be published on the school website. As the judgement is not finalised we are not able to discuss the outcome.
    Thank you to everyone who spoke to the Inspector on the playground in the morning and for completing the online Parent View questionnaire.

    On Wednesday 23rd January we invited a Maths Consultant to look at how we teach maths across the school. She was very impressed with what she saw and once again our children’s behaviour was simply outstanding. When she spoke to them she was extremely impressed with how articulate and passionate they were about their learning. Year 1 had linked maths to Welly Wednesday and made large outdoor balance scales. The children loved it!

On Friday 21st December we held an assembly to celebrate the successes we have in swimming, cross country and many other sports. Mrs Gallagher has also introduced five cups for achievements in ‘Passion, Team Work, Respect, Honesty and Determination’. These will be awarded by our Sports Leaders

    On Tuesday lunchtimes, we will be continuing to run Maths Homework Club. This is an opportunity for the children to bring in their maths homework books in order to complete some of their homework during school time. The club is run by Mr. Sewards and a team of highly-enthusiastic Year 6 volunteers, who offer help to any children in the club who are struggling to answer questions. This homework club will now be open to all children from Years 1-6 who wish to attend, and they do not have to come every week. The club currently is only aimed at children wanting to work on their maths homework books, so please make sure your child brings this book into school on a Tuesday if they wish to attend.

    It is lovely to see children active and riding bikes and scooters. However, as the playground is very busy children are not permitted to ride them on the playground at any time. Please ensure your child dismounts and pushes their bicycle/scooter whilst on school grounds. If your child rides a bicycle or scooter to school please apply for a cycle permit from the school office.
