Dear Parents and Carers,

I hope that you had the chance to meet Mrs Bateman on Monday. Alison attended our Senior Leadership planning day last week, she also attended the full governors’ and steering group meetings on Monday night- so she is fully up to date with the school’s priorities.

I hope that you enjoyed last week’s Sports Day as much as I did – thank you to all the staff for their organisation and particularly to Mr Callaghan.

Thank you to all the children who played in the Summer Concert yesterday morning. I was thrilled to see and hear the children perform so skilfully. A special “thank you” to Tesia Harrison, Michael Chadwick and Yuko Kelly for all their support for our musicians.

Best wishes, Penny Cox

Important information:

Results across the school. A Parent Mail will go today with the details of all our statutory assessments results. I am extremely pleased with how highly the children have achieved. Do take a look at it.

Attendance. Please ensure that your child does not miss school unless they are ill. The first day back at school is Wednesday 4th September. The teachers will be explaining their expectations of the class and establishing routines in this first week so it is vital that the children are present. Today we are sending letters to families whose children are regularly late. Please ensure that your children arrive on time.

Trainers for P.E.. These should only be plain blue, black or white. Your child will need the correct trainers from September and the updated pe top if didn’t buy one this year.

Junior Library Books. Please note that all Junior Library books should be returned to the Junior Library by Friday 19th July, please. The “Reading Cloud” has been set up so that books cannot be taken out after 19th July and any books on loan after that will automatically be flagged as overdue. 

Important Dates. Friday 19th July 9.10am Head Teacher’s Award for years 4-6. You’ll get a Parent Mail if your child is receiving an award. Monday 22nd _ whole school picnic – children to bring a snack. From 3pm – 3.30pm ex pupils welcome back to meet Mrs Cox. Tuesday 23rd July - school finishes at 2.15pm.

Hungry Little Minds. This is a government initiative to encourage parents and carers to do things to boost children’s communication, language and literacy development. Reading, playing and chatting with them are simple things you can do to help them develop, even when they are too young to say much back. You can access tips and activities from and also search for activities in your area using a new postcode finder service.

Measles. Measles is on the rise. MMR remains the most effective way to protect against measles. Please ensure that you and your children have completed the 2-dose course. There is no upper age limit to offering MMR vaccine. Vaccinations are available from your GP practice.

Chaplain’s Corner"For some this week brings great change with a new adventure to begin! For others, a new year to look forward to continuing where they are. Whatever place you find yourselves at this time, I hope the words of St Paul in Philippians 4:8-9 may encourage you all: "Finally...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things...And the God of peace will be with you." As we reflect on the last year and look forward to the new term in September I wish you all wonderful summer break and whatever the next year may hold - pray God's richest blessing goes with you. In His Grip, Tom Rutter, Chaplain"
