Weekly Newsletter 17.05.2024

Dear Parents and Carers,

We have had an extremely busy week this week in school and each class has promoted National Mental Health Week. Children have looked at tools and strategies to help with good mental health and there has been some fantastic discussions taking place too. Please take a look on the class pages and Twitter site.

Year 3 shared learning

Shared learning for Year 3 parents/carers is on Wednesday afternoon - starting at 2:30. We look forward to seeing you in school then.

Key Stage 2 SATs week

This week all of our Year 6 children have complete the National Standardised SATs tests. They have shown great resilience and had such a fantastic attitude all week towards these papers. The entire school team are so proud of every one of them, they absolutely deserved their treat today and we hope they have more celebrations and a fun weekend ahead to congratulate them all too.

I would also like to thank the incredible staff team for all their hard work, the longer hours in school, the covering of different classes and all their continued support for our Year 6s this week - the full English breakfasts certainly went down a treat!

School trips

Over the next few weeks up to the summer holidays we have a number of trips/visits planned. Please can you ensure that payments are made on Parentpay by the deadline date outlined on the letters as unfortunately, if we don't get sufficient funds to cover the cost of the trip and the coach then it would have to be cancelled. Thank you for your continued support.

Our children across school are all enjoying the many sporting opportunities we have had taking place over this year. Well done to our Key Stage 1 children who enjoyed the Inter Trust rounders event here today. It was lovely to welcome children from our other Trust schools for the afternoon.

Dinner debts

Some of the dinner debts on Parentpay are adding up to quite a significant amount. Please can you ensure that your childs/children's dinner is paid for and that any outstanding debt is cleared. If the account gets to a debt of £6 a dinner cannot be ordered and you will be contacted to bring a packed lunch. Thank you for your support with this.

This week we have had many children/families on holiday which has affected some classes overall percentages however the majoirty of classes have been in the 90s again this week. Well done!
