  • Year 6, please can you come to the main entrance at 08.45 to get ready.
  • Years 3,4,5 to meet on the KSI playground on the Friday morning.
  • The school will open KSII playground for Year 6 parents to park.

 

Staff Changes

We are very sorry to be losing Miss Davies from our Year 4 classroom and Mrs Wilkins from our Year 5. They will be very much missed and I’d like to thank them on behalf of the pupils, parents and governors for their stirling work over the years and to wish them every success in their future.

I am very pleased to announce that we have appointed Mrs E Root to take Year 5 from January 2020. We had an excellent set of candidates and are very pleased with our choice. With plenty of experience Mrs Root will be able to hit the ground running in January and will be coming into school regularly in the Autumn term to meet the children and learn our procedures.

 

Heads and Deputies

I am always so impressed with the ability of our children to think about what makes a good Head and Deputy Head in the school. I am very pleased to announce that we have announced our picks for next year as follows:

  • Head Boy – Seb Head Girl – Chloe
  • Head Girl – Emma D Head Boy – Oscar

 

Reminder – School Service

Our School service is on Thursday 18th at 14.00. We ask parents to wait for us on the KSI playground to help escort our school over to the church. Year 6 do not come as they are preparing their service for Friday but this gives our Year 5’s the chance to look after other classes and take on their roles as the oldest children in school.

Pick up is from school only after we return from church which should be at around 15:00 to 15:30.

 

Looking Back

 

Year 6

What a fantastic Year 6. Thank you for being such great ambassadors, prefects, sportsmen and sportswomen and students. We will really miss you all and wish every one of you success in your futures.

 

 

Have a great summer.

Looking Forward

Reception Induction

Next week will be our second Reception Induction session. Our ambition is for parents to leave their children at the entrance and for us to escort them to class. Obviously we can have parents come up as well but we aim to try to get them independently into class.
Given how wonderfully the children settled into class this week, I think this is quite possible this year.

 

Drop In Parent’s Evening

Reports will be out shortly and we provide a final parents’ evening this term. This is not like other parents’ evenings and is far more of a drop in evening. Our reports to parents will contain all that we feel we need to communicate to parents. We provide this drop in session for any parent who may wish to speak to the teacher for clarification about the report. We won’t really have anything more to add so coming in on the 16th won’t provide you with any new information.
Should you wish to speak to your teacher about the report, please make your way to the classroom and the teacher will be available to speak to you if they are free to do so. We don’t take appointments for this session.

 

School Service

Our School service is on Thursday 18th at 14.00. We ask parents to wait for us on the KSI playground to help escort our school over to the church. Year 6 do not come as they are preparing their service for Friday but this gives our Year 5’s the chance to look after other classes and take on their roles as the oldest children in school.

Pick up is from school only after we return from church which should be at around 15:00 to 15:30.

 

Looking Back

Reception Intake

What a great class – thanks to all parents for coming and, judging by the fact that many children didn’t want to go, we’ve got some keen and eager children on the way for 19/20.

 

e-safety Workshop

Thank you to parents for attending our e-safety workshop. I do hope my message was not too alarming and that you are now perhaps a little better prepared for the dangers of online grooming and predation. Please contact me if you want to have further information about parental controls for your broadband providers or your mobile devices.

 

Open Morning

A great turnout and some great work going on. Thanks to all who came.

 

Northwood

Fingers crossed!

 

As always, I will always do my best to speak to you about any concerns you may have on the day so please feel free to approach me, either on the playground or book an appointment if you prefer.

3rd, 10th & 17th July 2019 – New Intake Sessions

Our first Reception induction takes place on 3rd July at 2.00pm. Please come to the entrance for then and we will have a short session with Mr Wilken before moving into the classroom.

On the 10th July, the session begins at 2.30pm and it is optional for parents/carers to stay.

On the 17th July, the sessions begins in the morning at 9.30am and this session is for the children only.
