News - 8th October 2020
This week our value is responsibility and we have been discussing in assembly our roles in looking after our school, village and our global responsibilities to take care of our world. The children have so many wonderful ideas and initiatives; it is up to us adults to take heed!
On Monday, we started the day with our first Fire Drill of the academic year. The children responded maturely and swiftly, including our new pupils, who have been absolute superstars!
On Tuesday and Wednesday, I attended the ‘virtual’ Good Shepherd Trust Leadership Conference, where in we discussed our vision and hopes for the future education of our pupils and the role of the Trust within this vision.
This morning, Year 3 and 4 welcomed Dr Rev Rachel Greene to lead our Harvest Service. Whilst we missed the rest of our school and our visit to the church, it was nonetheless a beautiful and celebratory service. Thank you to Mrs Ryder and the Year 3 team for organising and to Year 3R for their wonderful readings and prayers.
Next week, teachers will be commencing virtual parent’s evenings and you will be contacted by your child’s teacher with the relevant information. If you have any problems or issues with technology, please let us know as soon as possible.
Congratulations to Mrs Oqvist, who received her Level 5 Diploma Certificate for School Business Leaders. Well done Mrs O, we are very proud of you!
Finally, please do read below and ask your children about our hopes and plans to replace part of our grass area with artificial grass.
This is so important to ensure all children have adequate outside space during the wetter months. We will be so grateful for any donations or ‘squares’ purchased!
Have a wonderful weekend.
