Headteacher’s Comments

It’s arrived!!! As many of you will have noticed, my personal gym, whoops I mean the Outside Gym has been installed.  I think you will agree it looks fantastic!  Everyone should have had an opportunity to use it by now.  There will be a fence installed around the gym, but in the meantime if you have got any younger children, please stop them from using the equipment.  The equipment is designed for children who are 7 and above.  There will be details in next week’s newsletter about when parents can use the gym.


Well done to Jamel Johnson-Trent and Vincenzo Bergamino who received a Green Card last week for working independently in maths and Reading Protocol.  Well done to Louie Chillingworth who received a Green Card for his excellent maths work.  Well done to Charlie Hiscott and Katie Square for the effort they put into their literacy work on Monday.  Keiran Wilkinson received a Green Card for a big improvement in his French speaking.  Well done to Jack Whiten and Rebecca Bright who received Green Cards for the amount of effort they have put into their learning recently.  Mrs McConnell gave Gabriella Musollari a Green Card for her outstanding art work.  Well done to Francesca Wood, Tim Akpuda, Zeeshan Hussain, Amber-Louise Giddy, Aiden Mead, Ceylan Corakkum, Amber Brooks, Holly Morris, Sophie Lewis, Alisa Cakirgoz and Kacey Ashley all from year four who received Green Cards this week.  Well done everyone!


Well done to Mrs Sach’s class who had the best attendance last week with an impressive 99.2%.


Every year we have to complete a School Census.  Our attendance is better this year than last.  Well done and thank you for your support.  Keep up the hard work, your child will be the one who benefits from good attendance!
