Thank you to all the parents who made an appointment and turned up to this week’s Pupil Progress Meetings. In our last OFSTED inspection the inspectors asked us to ‘Better engage all parents and carers by ensuring more frequent information to parents about pupils’ progress, targets and ways in which they can support their child’s learnin.’ I hope you found the Interim Progress Report useful. On it you will find your child’s current level and what level they are expected to achieve by the end of this year. This is based upon the level your child achieved at the end of year 2.
Well done to Jessica Phillips and Holly Philpot who received a Green Card for always working hard in class. Ami Byatt, Alesha Wade, Leah Marshall, Scarlett Warren, Owen Brennan and Reece Vallance received Green cards for working hard in a team, making up teaching songs with words, pulse and melody. Well done to Charlie Best for working hard in Maths Booster. Well done to Elspeth Allen and Shanice Lolomari for receiving Green Cards for working really hard in Writing Booster. Well done to Danny Gill who received a Green Card for his excellent Art Work.
Another Positive Governor Visit
Mrs Square (Parent Governor) carried out a health and safety visit on Monday. She then sent an email to me saying ‘While walking round the school I noticed all the children seemed to be engaged in their learning and everyone looked happy. The children were all well behaved and the staff were so friendly. I am so pleased my children go to the school.’
Year 5 Swimming
Next week (22 March) will be the last week for the current year five to swim. On Thursday 29 March the year 5 children who participated in the Aqua Splash will be going swimming to try out for the Swimming Gala. Please make sure your child has the correct swimming costume and £1.
Well done to Mrs Stafford’s Class who won Percy after having Best Attendance last week.
Grand Easter Raffle
You should receive a book of raffle tickets. This is for our Grand Easter Raffle. The first prize is a BMX bike.

Please encourage your friends and family to buy a ticket to help. The draw will take place during the Family Bingo Evening.
