Week ending 15th September

Dear Parents,


We are very pleased with how well the children have settled in this term.  We hope that the parent meetings have been useful.  We have enjoyed an Achievement assembly this week with children throughout the school being recognised for their efforts and achievements.  We were also pleased to give out thirteen Librarian badges; the children are very proud to be taking on this role.  Today we have given the Sports Leaders their hats and whistles which I am sure they will enjoy using!! They will begin their role next week.  This year we have decided to also have two Sports Captains for each colour team and they will receive a different hat once they arrive.


Next week we will be having our normal Tuesday Church assembly in school however for the 19th September we would like to welcome Reception parents to join us.  Each July our Governors kindly give our Year 6 children a Bible as they leave us.  This year we would like to add to the tradition and FOSFA will be giving the Reception children a suitable Bible  to use during their time at our school. Thank you FOSFA.


Many of you had the opportunity to meet Mrs Runciman this week on the playground.  We are very pleased to have her working with us and the children are enjoying getting to know her.


We are pleased to have received our SIAMS report; this is the findings of the Church School Inspection which took place in July 2017.  I have included a summary of the report in Office Updates.  We are proud of our achievements and we are already working hard on the recommended areas to develop


We very much hope that you will be able to join Staff and Govenors next Wednesday evening for our Information evening; it will also be a lovely opportunity for new parents to get to know more families.


Wishing you all a lovely weekend
