Good afternoon,


It has been wonderful to welcome the children back this week.  Monday morning started for me with one of the pupils saying how lovely it was to be back.  We began with assemblies celebrating the wonderful redecoration work along with a focus on 'going the extra mile'.


We are so incredibly fortunate to have had the support of Cala Homes and their community pledge scheme.  I have attached some photos of Bullfinch and School House.  I know all the staff and tradesmen were pleased to be part of such a wonderful project and it is important for our pupils to see and value what can be achieved through giving time and expertise.  We will be asking the Cala staff and contractors back into school soon for a thank you celebration and we look forward to welcoming parents as well.


We have a busy summer term planned and it is lovely to see the children outside in the sunshine.  I am hoping it won't be too long before we can start running on the field again.  Within school we are making plans to restart our Warren Lodge visits for Chaffinch. Our Goldfinch pupils will also support the leading of Fledgelings sessions, the church toddler group.  I am also excited to share information about our Friday sports club this term.  In the summer term we like to organise multisports sessions and some other team sessions for parents to participate alongside their children and siblings.  I have attached a photo of the poster which is displayed around school and will be posted on Facebook.  We hope you enjoy these sessions, it is wonderful to show the children the value of sport whatever our age and ability.


I love to see the hard work of the children coming together as we move through the Summer term.  It is a busy and important term and I thank you all for supporting us to support the children as they continue to develop their resilience, readiness and sense of responsibility.


I wish you a lovely weekend
