Headteacher’s Comments

As I told the children in assembly on Monday, I am proud to become headteacher of the Junior School and I look forward to working with everyone to help move the school forward.  I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Mrs Chapman, our new year-4 teacher and Ms Cromwell, our new Deputy Headteacher to our school.  Along with the rest of the staff, we have a strong team in place to continue to move the school forward.

Although only a three day week, it has certainly been an extremely busy one!  The highlight of the week was the ‘Street Party’ lunch held today.  Bunting, sandwiches and music, now that is what I call a party!

Whatever you are doing this weekend, whether celebrating the Royal wedding or taking this opportunity to spend more time as a family, I hope you have an enjoyable long bank holiday weekend.

Behaviour

During the last half term 47 children received more than 3 Green cards.  Parents of these children should have received a post card congratulating their child on this well-deserved achievement.

Attendance

Before we broke up the following children received a certificate for having 100% (being in school every day) attendance: Tim Akpuda, Samantha Burton, Cody Cassar, Millie Eastwood, Victoria Fry, Niklas Heinen, DeAndre Johnson-Trent, Jamel Johnson-Trent, Shanice Lolomari, Voeulya Mbakadi, Cole McFadyen, Alex Mead, Nicholas Murphy, Alfie Plowman, George Plowman, Erin Rumens, Steven Skinner, Luke Spinks, Charandeep Tak, Amy Vallance, Ryan White.  Well done to all you!

Parking

Please be considerate when parking on the roads around the school.  If parking on a pavement, you should leave enough space for a double buggy to pass and you should not under any circumstances park across our neighbours’ drives.

Maths Competition

Leonora Trosupha, Owen McDonnell, Zach Antonio and Peter Bird represented the school yesterday at a Maths Competition with other schools in Epping Forest.  Our team came 3rd.  Well done!

Mr Woollcott’s 10km Run

As some of you may know, I have taken up running.  I have entered a couple of 5km runs earlier in the year and have recently completed the Loughton 4km fun run.  I am now in training for a 10km run in Manchester on Sunday 15 May.  I am hoping to complete the run in less than an hour.  I am raising money for the Alzheimer’s Society.  If you would like to sponsor me, please return the slip at the bottom of the page or visit www.justgiving.com/neil-woollcott.
