Headteacher's Weekly Bulletin 29th April 2019

Dear Parents and Carers,

Here are a few bits and bobs of information for you - another short week beckons! Pupils won't be in on Thursday as it is local elections and we are a Polling Station, but staff will be in training with MPIS. We are also off on Monday 6th May for Bank Holiday Monday. The children (and staff) are all at sixes and sevens at the moment as we have lost our routine!

Year 6 have started 'Mock Sats Week' today. This is really useful exercise: it gives the pupils the opportunity to have a go at the tests in the way the real test will be run during SATs week, teachers and pupils can mark the tests together as a learning opportunity and helps us remember how many tables we can actually fit in the hall without children sitting on top of each other! We had lots of parents come to our SATs meeting last week and we hope you and the pupils found it helpful. 

Parent Questionnaires

Thank you for the 60 questionnaires we have received back so far - they have been extremely positive. Mrs Willett in the office is going to to pull all the replies together and I will report back in my bulletin next week. Please send any questionnaires back in by Friday please so that your views can be counted.


The calendar on the website has been updated and has all the dates in you need to know to the end of July - please check reguarly because if we get the chance to take part in anything we always say "Yes" and it is easy for us to update the website as we go along. I've attached a list of key dates on this bulletin and there are paper copies in the office.

Summer Term Club Calendar

All clubs are now up and running. If you didn't put your child down for anything, we have a few spaces in several clubs so just ask at the office and they will check the registers for you. Please remember to email school or leave a message 'Press 1' option if your child is supposed to be doing a club but can't come that week - it saves us making lots of phonecalls to chase up pupils we know have been in school that day.

Please sign up to ParentPay even if you don't have school dinners - remember from September 2019 we are trying to go (mostly) paper-free.

Best Wishes, 

Mrs Nunwick
