Healthy Living Days
We are holding our annual ‘Healthy Living Days’ on Thursday, 25th June and Friday, 26th June. We will be encouraging the children to take part in a range of different food and exercise activities to further promote the importance of healthy living!
EYFS (Nursery and Reception) will have their sports day on Friday, 26thJune; - morning Nursery and Jungle Explorers at 10.15 am; afternoon Nursery and Deepsea Divers at 2pm. If you have children in both Nursery and Reception and they are not at the same time, please see your child’s class teacher so that we can arrange for you to come just once.
Weather permitting…KS2 Sports Day is scheduled for Monday 6th July;
KS1 Sports Day is scheduled for Wednesday 8th July.
Families are very welcome to come and support your children. Both will start at 1.30 pm on the School Field. Please use the field gate off Neilson Road. The event is expected to finish by 3pm. Staff will bring the children back to their classes for dismissal from their usual exits. Please join us to support the children; they really enjoy having their families cheering them on!
Year 6 Leavers Disco
Our Year 6 will have their Leavers Disco on Tuesday, 14th July – 6 – 7.30 pm. The theme this year is ‘Hollywood Red Carpet’. (Bling and Glamour!) Please ensure that we have the correct contact details for you during the evening and that you collect your child promptly from the Junior Hall at 7.30pm.
Year 6 will be going to PGL Residential next weekend – Friday, 12th June to Monday 15th June. We know that they will have a fun packed weekend! We hope the weather is kind for them.
A group of our pupils from KS2 are this week taking part in a Residential trip to London, along with pupils from four other local Primary Schools in our area. This is a great opportunity for our pupils to experience a Residential visit with other pupils from the local community. We wish them a very enjoyable trip!
Thank you to all our families who completed our questionnaire this year. Your feedback is important to allow us to meet the needs of the children and you, their families. We had so many positive comments - you identified the strengths of our school as 'being safe, happy and welcoming... with a supportive and holistic attitude to education'. You said that your children are 'valued and supported in their individual talents' and that staff are 'approachable and dedicated'. You appreciate all the free after school clubs run by our staff and that the curriculum for our children is rich with interesting activities and topics. Your feedback has been shared with the staff who will continue to work in partnership with you to provide the very best learning experience for your child. Some families have asked for additional homework guidance, and although we won't send home worksheets, we have invested in additional Literacy resources to support spellings and grammar which can be accessed from home in a similar way to the maths online resources. During the autumn term you will see tweaks to some current systems based on the feedback you have given. Please continue to let us know what you think. Remember you can add additional feedback about our school on the Ofsted website. Please follow the link https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk

More details to follow.
This year we will be holding a Summer Music Festival on the school yards alongside the usual stalls and café. More information will follow in a separate letter!

Children must be collected in the usual way at 1.30 p.m. All children will need to be collected by this time by an adult who can take them around the fair. If you are making alternative pick up arrangements for that afternoon, please ensure that you have added that person’s name in to the contact form in the office, so we can safely hand your child over.
