Headteacher’s Comments

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a lovely summer.  For those not returning in September, I wish you well and look forward to hearing of your future achievements.  For those who are returning, I will look forward to working with you again.



Well done to Miss Gibbs’s class who had the best attendance last week with 99.5%.


This is a reminder that I am unable to authorise holidays especially if:

  • your child’s attendance is below 90% during the preceding 12 weeks before the leave was taken,
  • the leave was taken during the month of September,
  • the leave is taken during the End of Key Stage 2 tests (11 May to 15 May 2015),
  • it is the second leave taken in any one academic year,
  • your child is in Year 6.

100% Attenders

Well done to these children who have had 100% attendance since September – Megan Best, Raymond Bull, Amber-Louise Giddy, Archie Hemming, Demi Hoffman, Jemma Johnson, Samaya Kaleel, Clarence Kelly, Ryan Locke, Evie Moss, Milliam Namuli, Darren Ojuade, Jessica Okaka, Kye Page, Charlie Pegrum, Michael Phipps, Ania Pinnington, Hannah Platts, Alfie Plowman, Alexi Prime, Bridget Thomas and Holly Whiten and Charlie Williams.

Thanks to the PTA

Well done to the PTA who organised yet another action packed and successful Inflatable Day.  A special thank you to Panni Shiakallis and Julie Santagata who have helped set up the PTA and who have worked so hard to ensure its success. Panni and Julie will be leaving the PTA this year as their children are moving on to secondary school.

Advance notice that our ‘Meet the Teacher’ evening, where you have a chance to hear what your child will be learning next year, is on Thursday 4 September starting at 7.00pm.  This meeting is unsuitable for children to attend.
