This week can best be described as ‘hectic’!
As we hurtle towards the end of term, teachers are working at full pace to keep children educated and busy, right up until the end! At the same time, teachers are completing children’s end of term reports, preparing for the end of year production, having handover meetings with prospective teachers and generally going flat out to make the end of term a roaring success!
Teaching Assistants, premise staff and administrators don’t get off lightly either! They are already planning premises work to take place over the summer holiday and thinking about next year - dusting off the paperwork for review and coordinating diaries, events, trips, clubs and much more! My thanks go to every single one of my hardworking colleagues, as well as to our lovely children for being so helpful and well-behaved! A reminder from parents, to keep it up until the end of term, never goes amiss, thank you.
Colleagues were invited to attend the first part of Tuesday evening’s governors meeting. The Chair of Governors, Mrs Doherty, presented staff with a wonderful cake, decorated in school colours, and with the school name and Ofsted outcome ‘good’ written in the icing! A great time was had by all as cake was washed down with something sparkly and we were all very appreciative of governors’ kind acknowledgement.
For my own part, I should like to thank governors in their turn, in particular our Chair, for their incredibly hard work; they are all unpaid volunteers and invest a great deal of time and effort into supporting our school. We value their collective wisdom, their approachability and the common sense and guidance we receive from them. They have helped us through a demanding year and also deserve every credit for our very pleasing Ofsted outcome.
Well done to children who participated in the District Sports at Charterhouse School this week. More about this below and a big thank you to Mrs Wright, for the breadth of opportunities she provides for children to participate in competitive sports.
Thank you to our Worship Team who delivered a super assembly this week. It was also my privilege, on Wednesday morning, to attend the final dress rehearsal for the end of year production of ‘Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits’. Our friends from the local Village Nursery also came along to watch. It was the first time I had seen the result of the hard work that has gone into the production. We look forward to yet another fantastic performance this evening and tomorrow night! The PTA will be serving refreshments and we look forward to seeing you all there!
Have a wonderful weekend!
