Dear Parents and Guardians,


It feels like half term was a long time ago but it really wasn't and I hope the children all enjoyed the rest.  It certainly felt well timed for us in regards to Covid and I am pleased that we have had no further cases.


It was great to see so many children enjoying NSsport Inset day activities on Monday. As a staff we had a great day focusing on our evaluation against the church inspection criteria.  It was wonderful to celebrate what we are doing and exciting to see how we plan to progress further.


We started the half term with a run on the field as a whole school.  It was a lovely treat which reminds us of how fortunate we are.


I have had the pleasure of spending the week in Rosefinch whilst Mrs Guillaume has sadly been unwell (with a negative PCR).  The children have worked so hard and I have thoroughly enjoyed seeing their learning, especially our text mapping today in English.


Today we said goodbye to Mrs Farrell after 7 wonderful years of having her as part of our team.  Mrs Farrell is such a kind, loving and positive member of staff and we will miss her.  I know Chaffinch gave her a great send off and we wish her all the best in her new role in a local secondary school.

Next week  Mrs Street will be joining our lunchtime team and I am sure the children will make her very welcome.


Today finished with a great football match for the girls.  They lost 1-0 against The Colleton and played really well.  The girls showed great determination, teamwork and kindness and I was very proud of how hard they worked.  Well done girls and thank you Mr O'Reilly.


I wish you all a safe weekend in regards to fireworks and Covid.


With kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
