Dear parents & guardians,


I hope you are well.  This has been such a busy week and it has flown by.  I have had the pleasure of 3 days training (online) along with Mrs Dodds and Mrs Combe.  The training was called Therapeutic Thinking and we are very excited about moving our school forward through this approach.


The Governors have also met this week on Teams.  It was great to celebrate the return to school and review the measures in place whilst also focusing on whole school development.  I would like to draw your attention to our Relationships and sex education policy which will be added to the policies page of the website tomorrow.  This is under consultation and we welcome your feedback. Sadly we cannot arrange a parent meeting at school for this consultation so I urge you to email me if you wish and we will set a date for a Teams consultation meeting in a couple of weeks time.


Whilst we are settling back into the term, we remain just as cautious as ever regarding Covid.  Please can I remind you to take your child's temperature each morning as a routine and if they show any signs of being unwell please take a proactive and careful approach in regards to sending them to school.  


Thank you for supporting us today for Comic Relief, we had a distanced, but whole school skipping competition.  We were so impressed with the children's skipping and it was great to be together enjoying exercise and sunshine.  I will confirm the amount raised next week but here are the colour team scores!


Blue - 1601

Green -1982

Yellow - 2041

Red - 2068   


Well done to the Reds and to everyone for joining in.  Thank you to Year 6 for your counting and leadership and thank you Mr O'Reilly for organising it all!  A fantastic 7692 skips!!


Please note that Goldfinch will have their PE on Tuesday next week rather than Monday so please adjust the uniform/PE kit day.


I wish you a lovely weekend, hopefully a sunny one.


With kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
