Next week’s value is Enthusiasm


“Every time you find work, do it the best you can.” Ecclesiastes 9:10

Dear parents/carers

Children and staff are now in full swing of the new term as new and exciting topics have been introduced to each class all under our spring theme of ‘Finding out about the world’.

I have visited each class this morning and children were eager to tell me what they have learnt so far about sea creatures, the Titanic and the Victorians to name but a few, and as I sit here typing I can hear the beautiful voices of year 2 singing enthusiastically along to a very modern version of the timetables!

This week our School Business Manager, Mrs Oqvist and I have met with the chair of the PTA to discuss future fundraisers.  I have had meetings with both the local confederation Heads and Heads from the Good Shepherd Trust.  These have been very productive and an opportunity to share good practice and ways of supporting each other to ensure the best outcomes for children in our communities.

Next week is the start of after school clubs.  Please ensure you inform the class teacher if your child is unable to attend or if there are any changes to pick up arrangements.

Have a wonderful and hopefully dry weekend!

Mrs Sheila Buckley

Acting Headteacher
