Dear Parents and Guardians,


I know I have emailed this week but it still feels right to welcome you again into the new school year.  We have had a wonderful first week back and whilst it can be exhausting getting back into a routine again, it has been a pleasure.  We have welcomed our new Reception children along with other children in Key Stage 2.  It has been amazing to see how happy and settled they have been in just 4 days.


Our Goldfinch children have gone home with lots of letters and we are delighted to be organising pupil leadership roles within the school.  It is great to start a year in such a positive manner with Covid definitely in the background rather than at the forefront.


On Wednesday, our new Diocesan Advisor, Marion Standing came to meet with me and have a tour of our school.  She said that we should feel proud of what we are achieving in our school and we certainly are.  I am looking forward to working with Marion to continue our school development.


Mrs Wirth is holding a meeting for Year 6 parents on Wednesday at 4.30pm to discuss PGL. Following this, all parents are invited to our Information evening from 5pm to 6pm.  The talks by the teachers will be in classrooms at 5pm and 5.30pm and I hope you will pop into the hall for a cup of tea and also see the information shared in there.


NSsport has run successfully for their first week of leading our wrap around care and I am delighted with the feedback we have received. The children are really enjoying the sessions and next week it will be great to have sports clubs running alongside.


The incredibly sad news last night of our Queen passing away was a shock to us all.  We will support the children over the coming weeks with any questions they may have and also their reflections.  The assembly today was lovely and I would like to thank those parents who were able to be with us at such short notice.  I will also add a support resource onto our parent support page on the website in case it is useful.


I wish you a restful weekend and I look forward to seeing you next week.

With kind regards

Jacquie Vanstone
