Issue 39 2013-14

Dear Parent/Carer,

Despite it being short and the final week of the year, we have managed to cram in a whole host of amazing end of term activities with the children. We warmly welcome back Mrs Moore this week from her maternity leave and what a week to return! With Transition Day, Reception’s graduation ceremonies, Nursery’s garden parties, the Poetry day complete with reading breakfast, the poetry competition and the presentation of the June Wood award, you would think that there would be no room for anything else….BUT we like to maximise every last moment of learning here at Robin Hood so Year 3/ 4 have enjoyed an end of year trip to Sheffield to see the Horrible Histories performance today, our last day- that’s what I call an action packed and brilliant end to a fantastic year.

A message from Miss Mees (Active Team leader)

This year has been an extremely busy and action-packed year for The Active Team!  The children now have two hours of PE per week, have taken part in intra-competitions, represented the school in competitions, had fantastic extra-curricular clubs available to them, opportunities to work with PE teachers at Rodillian High School and raised lots of money for the new playground through sponsored events. We would like to thank the PTA, in particular Kay Millson and Stephanie Findlay and all parents who have volunteered their time during recent various events. We would also like to thank the local community for their support in all sporting activities. It is fantastic to be able to share with you before the school year draws to a close that our actions of this year have resulted in an award!  The Active Team are extremely proud that the school now holds the recognised award “Youth Sports Trust Bronze Quality Mark”. To achieve this award, a quality assured self-review has taken place which has enabled the Active Team to reflect on all achievements this year and the next steps moving forward. We have so much planned for next year and we can’t wait to get started with it!

Robin Hood Resident’s Association

Robin Hood Residents Association Summer Fayre is taking place on Saturday 19th July from 1 - 4pm on the community orchard, Copley Lane opposite the post office. There will be majorettes, crafts, music and refreshments and some good old family fun. Please do support this event if you can.

An end of year message from the PTA

A huge thank you to EVERYONE for taking part in the Tour de Robin Hood.  So far we have made a magnificent £2,100.  A very generous donation from First Direct helped.  If you have had the opportunity to read the annual PTA newsletter you will by now be aware that YOU ALL have managed to raise over £5,300 this year. If you are lucky enough to be out and about these holidays, please could you be aware of our raffle to be held on 29th November & ask for donations towards it?  You’ll be surprised what being a little cheeky gets! Finally, have a wonderful summer holidays and we hope to see our regulars and more at our next meeting on the 24 September 8pm, Gardeners Arms.  Contact us:, facebook: www. or twitter:  @robinhoodpta

A final message from me

It is impossible to reach the end of the academic year without reflecting on the past 12 months and looking forward to the future. We have had (another) hugely successful year at Robin Hood with some fantastic developments which will carry on into next year; amongst these our increased parental engagement, an improved P.E and Music curriculum, fabulous PTA involvement and support, not to mention the best SATs results in Year 2 and Year 6 that we have ever achieved. Every person involved with the school; pupils, parents, teachers, support staff, cleaners, office staff, chefs, governors and leaders have all had a stake in our many great successes and it is with great pride that I am able to bid you all farewell for the summer break. I know that we will build upon our achievements next year and I look forward to the school expanding and growing, improvements to our lunchtimes, implementation of the new National Curriculum amongst many positive developments which we have planned for next year.

We sadly say goodbye to several members of staff who have added great value to our school; Miss Pensom, Mrs Turpin, Miss Bailey, Miss Kaye, Miss Holmes and Mrs Philips; I wish you all the very best for the future.

Have a wonderful summer everyone.

Mrs Dale
