    6th March 2020

    I hope everyone had a lovely half term. It’s incredible to believe we have already had 2 weeks. Unfortunately the weather hasn’t been kind and we are hoping for some drier weather in the near future.

    Yesterday the school celebrated World Book Day. Both staff and pupils came to school dressed as characters from their favourite books. We had a huge range of characters, such as Where’s Wally, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Pupils also had the opportunity to exchange books today, so all children went home with a new book.  It was a lovely day in school celebrating and sharing books.

      Wow, where has this half term has gone.

       

      As always, a very busy time in school. Even the weather hasn’t managed to dampen the activities in school.

       

      As you are aware I wrote to parents last week regarding Hilary Riddell (Chair of Governors) who sadly passed away earlier this month. Hilary was a governor since 2008 as was hugely dedicated to this role and school. She will be missed by everyone. We have had to re-organise the governing body and I am pleased to announce that John O’Brennan will be taking over a chair and Jill Miller as vice chair, both of who have been governors at the school for a number of years.

       

      Next week is half term and we look forward to welcoming the children back to school on Monday 24th February. Fingers crossed next half term will be drier.

        We are looking forward to a visit from Gillian Keegan today. She is attending the school with ‘Business2schools’ who a company/charity who work with businesses to donate computer/office furniture to schools. We have been fortunate to receive furniture and chairs. This has enabled the school to replace a number of office chairs across the school, change the meeting room and Headteacher's office to a more useable space. We will be installing new work stations for staff over the Easter holidays.

        Happy Birthday to Bella who celebrated her first birthday this week.

        I would also like to remind parents/carers that we operate a texting system to keep parents regularly up to date with key events and the opening status of the school should we have any snow or significant weather. This compliments the information that would also be available on the website. Should any parents or carers wish to be added to the text system, then please call the office.

          Happy New Year

          Thank you to all parents and carers who completed parent questionnaires. The overwhelming majority of responses were incredible positive and complementary towards the school. I will be sending out the results to parents next week.

          Bella, our school dog has been busy over the last term, attending training every Monday evening with Mrs Spalding. We are very proud that Belle has completed her Bronze Award and this was presented to Bella in Assembly last Friday. Well done Bella.

            Wow, I can’t believe the Autumn term has come to an end. It is scary how quickly time goes.  It has been a very busy, but rewarding term.

            The new pupils have settled well and all pupils have continued to work hard to achieve their best.

            As you can imagine, we have been very much in the Christmas spirit in the last 2 weeks. The school choir have been particularly busy, performing at Donnington House, Marriott House and the Cross. Last week we had our annual Soiree and this week, the primary department have been performing their sing-a-long to parents. I am always amazed and proud of how talented our pupils are.

                

             

             

            All that is left for me to say for 2019 is to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a fantastic 2020.
