Dear Parent/ Carer,
What a wonderful week we have had!
We started the week with an assembly highlighting the significance of Poppy Day and took opportunities to think about those who lost their lives in the World Wars as well as those who continue to fight for our country. We have created a school display to remember our heroes and highlight the importance of the Poppy Appeal.
Our Champions of Change (Year 5/6) have continued to lead fund raising activities for Children In Need, which has cumulated in our assembly today, Robin Hood’s Got Talent and non-uniform day. It has been fantastic to see the children take ownership over these events and even counting up the funds and putting into spreadsheets- great life skills. We even had a visit from the real Pudsey Bear.
We held our Governor’s Day yesterday and welcomed Mrs Millson, Mrs Findlay, Mr Reid, Mrs Hey and Councillor Mulherin. They were all highly impressed with how polite, engaged and motivated the children are. They made many very positive comments on the quality of teaching and learning and how we are very competently working on our areas for development. I felt extremely proud to show off such confident and brilliant learners as well as the very best teachers and assistants.
I must also mention another highlight of this week which was the Nursery assemblies; the confidence of our youngest learners is truly amazing- a joy to watch!
School Gate from The Rowans
The gate at the bottom of the playground will be open for a trial period for children coming into school from The Rowans. This trial will be from Monday 16th November up to the Christmas break. The safeguarding of our children is paramount and the possibility of other traffic using The Rowans will be monitored. The gate will be open from 08:45 until 09:00 and from 15:00 until 15:30 unfortunately it cannot be open any other time as this effectively creates a security and safeguarding issue of access into the playground. We will welcome feedback from parents living on The Rowans.
Have a great weekend!
