September 2019

Welcome back to the start of a new term and school year. 

We had a marvellous summer; warm weather and sunshine and the children have returned looking refreshed, alert, keen, determined, resilient and ready for learning. 

Last Summer I was told by many parents that this is such an amazing school. When I look at the quality of our teachers and the wide curriculum and opportunities that we offer I can only agree with them. During the summer we had an OFSTED visit to our Nursery which gave the setting a very good report; recognising the foundations and quality learning that we offer. 

We are ready for a new year with many exciting plans; this week our Year 3 and 4 children are taking part in team building activities with Challenger Troop and over the next few weeks our Year 5 and 6 children will be enjoying their residential visits to PGL or First Hand Camping Experience. All of these activities offer the children an opportunity to develop their skills of; independence, resilience, consideration, caring, understanding, compassion, and determination to name a few. 

Year 6 from last year have all started in great excitement at their new secondary schools and we are reminded how quickly the year goes. We look forward to working with your children and with you as parents this year. 

Best wishes, Stuart
