Headteacher’s Comments

Thank you to everyone who attended the Dads’ Drink at the Volunteer on Tuesday and the Coffee Mornings on Wednesday and Friday.  In total 26 children (14%) were represented.  It was great to hear your views on what the school does well and your ‘tweaks’ to make Leverton Juniors better.


Well done to Alesha Wade, Cameron Straughan, Reece Vallance, Taya Hunter, GeorgiaBerry and Hermione Scott (Mrs Raddon’s Class) who received Green Cards this week.

Autumn Fair (Saturday 28 September 12pm- 3pm)

Our School’s PTA is organising our third annual Autumn Fair is on 28 September.  Please keep the date free and encourage friends and family to attend.  All money raised will be going towards improving the facilities in the school. 

King Harold Road Show (Wednesday 2 October- 6pm)

The Headteacher of King Harold Enterprise Academy, Denice Harper, and some members of staff will hold a Road Show for parents of children in Year 5 and 6.  The Road Show takes place on Wednesday, 2 October starting at 6:00pm.  The Road Show will be held here at The Leverton Junior School.

Leverton’s Got Talent Auditions (4 October- 1:15pm)

Instead of Stars in their Eyes this year, we will be hosting ‘Leverton’s Got Talent’.  Auditions will take place during the afternoon of 4 October.  If your child has a talent (singing/ dancing/ comedian/ magic etc) to share and would like to audition, they need to sign the Audition Sheet in each classroom by 1 October.

Speaking to Teachers early in the morning

This is a polite reminder that parents should only give short messages to teachers at the start of the day.  It is unfair on the rest of the class to have to wait and miss their learning, especially with the cold weather drawing in.  If you need a longer word with the teacher, please go to the office to make an appointment.
