Headteacher Update Friday 23rd February 2024

Welcome to this week’s Weekly Update!

A warm welcome to Term 4, to all of our pupils and their families! It has been lovely to see the children back at school this week and I hope everyone feels refreshed and ready to go, after a week away from school.

The prospect of Spring isn’t quite with us yet, and the children have been very resilient in what has been some truly horrific weather across these first few days! They have been finding out about their new learning journeys and sharing their termly homework projects with their classes – we’re looking forward to seeing so many more of these over the coming weeks.

Everyone has settled back into school, working hard an giving their best. I’ve seen some excellent Year 6 diary entries this week and know I’m going to be treated to some excellent learning and some proud smiles.

‘We held our first ‘Table of Awesomeness’ today. The children had a great time. There is a picture of them later on in the Bulletin. ‘Congratulations’ to Year 6 Williamson Class who are the Attendance Champions for Term 3 and collect £20 to spend on something for their classroom. The scores are reset, and we will find out who starts Term 4 with 10 points next week. ‘Well done’ to Hallie C won the ‘100% 

Attendance Raffle’ this week. It’s set to be a busy term ahead. In the last run up to the end of key stage assessments, our pupils in Year 6 are working hard and giving their best. Attendance at the Maths Club has been fantastic! Please reach out to your child’s class teacher, should you need to in the coming weeks.

We will also be hosting our Spring Parents Evening this term, on Tuesday 12th and Thursday 14th March. This is an opportunity to take a temperature check on your child’s progress and their effort in school. We will write to you shortly with all the information as to how to book an appointment with your child’s class teacher.

We have some new staff who will be joining us this term. ‘Welcome’, to Miss Blaber, who has joined our MDSA team this week. 

Finally, we love hearing about your child’s achievements and successes outside of school, too. So, if there is something that they have completed, that they would like to share, please let us know.

I look forward to seeing you in school across the coming weeks. Wishing all of our pupils a very successful Term 4!

Mr. Laker
