‘The best that I can be’

Building Work

The demolition of Class 1/2 and Reception classrooms will take place over half term and the building of the new classrooms will begin straight after. Reception will be taught in the learning hub and class 1/2 in the hall for the remainder of the term. The classroom furniture will be stored in a container at the front of the school. Whilst there will inevitably be some disruption, the works will be assessed in terms of the children’s safety and appropriate measures put in place. We are very excited about having 2 brand new classrooms and other long-overdue improvements being made to the school building.

Breakfast and After School Club

We are planning to start our breakfast and after school clubs in September. Please could you send a message to the office, or to your child’s class teacher via Dojo to say whether or not you would be interested in before and after school care, what time you would need breakfast club to begin (not before 7.30am) and what time you would need after school care to end (not after 6pm). There will, of course, be a charge for this service and it will only be able to run if we have enough children to make it viable. So far, we have only received a handful of replies. I look forward to more feedback on this matter.

Friends Quiz Night

Don’t forget that the Friends Quiz night is on this evening. The quiz starts at 7.30pm in the school hall.


Congratulations to these children who received commendations this week: Timothy Olusegun, for focusing hard on drawing shapes with given measurements and angles; Willow Snell, for showing a brilliant attitude towards learning; Nicole Mahoney, for starting every day with a smile and being a kind and helpful member of the class; Tommy Randall, for always going out of his way to help others and keep the classroom organised; Adaora Emechebe, for earning the most Dojo points in her class and all of Year 2 for their concentration and hard work in the SATs this week. Well done, everyone!
