Mrs Shah's Weekly Message W/C 21st September

Dear Parents/carers

As we start week 4 of this term, I am filled with joy and pride at how well the whole school community is working together to ensure we continue to provide the best education for our pupils.

We have had outdoor handwashing facilities fitted this week in our Junior school yard and will be having some fitted in the Infants school yard next week. This will no doubt help us to continue embedding the good and safe practice of regular handwashing.

This week we will also start trialling serving hot dinners for all pupils in the junior school.  An updated menu link has been sent out to all parents.

Over the next two weeks all our pupils will be sitting baseline tests for English and Maths. This will help us ascertain individual pupil gaps and support the teaching staff in planning for catch-up and keep up. As always, we will be sharing with valuable information about your child’s progress so far before the end of this half term and will include key areas of focus/targets for your child. This will guide you as parents/carers on how you support your child with their learning.


Thank you for your continued support.

Its Week 2 - Lets see what's been happening in Y5..............

This week we have been looking at the legend of King Arthur and his knights of the round table. We have started our story in reading and have been looking at what the front cover and first couple of pages can tell us about the rest of the story. We have been using our reading skills to think, wonder and make predictions about the rest of the legend.

Mrs Shah's Weekly Message W/C 14th September

Dear Parents/Carers

Last week was our first full week back with our pupils and what a week it has been! It has been delightful seeing how well our pupils and staff have settled back into school life. They have all embraced the new ways of working and have been very mature and diligent in ensuring the safety and well-being of all. I feel very proud of my team, all our pupils and the wider community for working together through a challenging week and making our pupils’ experience of returning to school an enjoyable one.

Whilst we have made some fantastic gains towards the successful re-opening of school, I feel we have a few more things to do. The morning dropping of at school gates seems to work so much better, with parents being punctual and arriving at the correct gate. Thank you all for this. However, we still need to work together on home time/end of day collection. Please, can all parents always arrive at their allocated time and observe social distancing. I would also encourage all parents/carers to wear masks when queuing. This will not only protect you and other parents, but it will also mean that my staff are protected.

I would also like to remind all parents/carers that the school is running a cashless system. This means that we, no longer accept cash in school. All parents need to set up their online payment account with school to pay for dinners, trips, uniform etc. If you need any support with this, then please ring our school office and the team will help you in setting this up.

I would like to remind parents that if you have missed sending a packed lunch with your child first thing in the morning, then we would ask that you arrange for your child to have a school dinner as we are unable to take through late packed lunches. This is to ensure that the integrity of bubbles is maintained.
