School news

Dear Parents,


It has been a pleasure to catch up with you over the past week.  Thank you to all those parents who attended the Information Evening; we hope you found it useful.  Our school has been improved so much over the summer and this has been enhanced by the wonderful classroom displays; they support learning, learning behaviours and they certainly add to the excitement of learning.


The children have settled back in so quickly, with Goldfinch clearly stepping up to their role within school; it is great to see.  Mrs Wirth and I carried out the Prefect interviews on Wednesday; we both felt very proud of the Year 6 and I can already see that they are committed to the role.  Our Reception children have settled into school routines and I have enjoyed watching them in the classroom and on the playground.  The Rosefinch staff have worked so hard to ensure they have had a smooth transition and I have loved getting to know them all.


The conservatory building work is near completion with plastering, painting and flooring planned for next week.  We will be having a celebratory opening in October and more information will follow.  The work at the front of school has been more problematic and I am sure you have seen me inspecting the fencing on numerous occasions!  Unfortunately the fencing will be coming down on Monday afternoon to be replaced with Heras fencing for a few days until new fencing can be installed.  I am sorry for the inconvenience but it is essential that we have high expectations and are happy.  I will keep you updated and ensure that access is safe.  I thank you again for your patience.


I am looking forward to spending more time in the classrooms next week. I wish you all a lovely weekend.
