Dear Parents,


It has been a great week and I have spent so much of it with the children. Christmas play rehearsals in classrooms are in full flow and I love hearing Rosefinch singing Away in a manager through the wall to my office.


We have taken 36 children to compete in a sportshall athletics competition and both the Chaffinch and the Goldfinch children have represented the school brilliantly. The Year 5/6 girls in their track events were particularly exciting to watch as they won each of their heats. We now await the results but I am delighted with their sporting attitude, determination and their behaviour at the event.


Our school was busy on Tuesday evening; Slimming World were in the hall, Governors in School House and a Wellbeing, Anxiety workshop was led in the Chaffinch classroom. The ladies running the session were delighted with the number of parents and I am pleased that so many of you found the evening useful. I will make sure we take up any similar opportunities for parent support in the future.


The Christmas Fair is always a wonderful occasion and I hope to see many of you tomorrow. The FOFSA committee have worked so hard and I am incredibly grateful to them for their time and commitment. FOFSA funds are used to further enrich the education of our children. The positive impact FOFSA has on the school was clear for our Ofsted inspector to see which should make us all very proud. Thank you for your support, let Christmas now begin!


Kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
