Deputy Headteacher Update - Friday 15th October 2021

Welcome to our weekly update!


It has been a fantastic week of learning across the whole school. Well done to everyone who has shown off their school values of: Knowledge, Equality, Determination and Achievement.


It was a pleasure today to see some of the fantastic home learning projects that the pupils have been completing over the last few weeks. I really enjoyed seeing the many Egyptian Pharaohs and Gods walking in to school this week with their home made Egyptian masks. There has been amazing learning throughout the school all week, so please take time to look at few of the lovely pictures from across the school below.


Last week, Mr Laker shared in his update that we held our Student Leader elections. I am proud to announce that due to the very high quality of the children’s presentations, we have elected 25 Student Leaders. Therefore, we have decided to split them in to two groups. The first group will take up their post from now until the end of Term three, followed by the second group of Student Leaders from Term four until the end of the year. Well done Year 6 I am confident you will do yourselves proud.


Today, we practiced our fire drill procedures and all of the children were fantastic. They sensibly and calmly left the building in a very good time. Great job everyone!


In this week’s Bulletin, we have shared our poster for our forthcoming Open Morning and Open Evening in November. If you know anyone who has a child starting school in September 2022, we’d be grateful if you could let them know about the dates of our visits to school.
