It is a lovely school with a welcoming feel and a positive atmosphere. Much more visible leadership team. A feeling of pride in the school. As parents we feel really proud that our son comes to such a great school, which we knew was fabulous whether OFSTED told us or not! The trips that Mrs Glover & Mrs Sear have been putting together are a fantastic idea and hope they continue. I am extremely happy with Daniel's progress since starting at the Pre-School. He seems to have made a lovely group of friends and enjoys coming in every day. I can't wait to see him progress further. Senior & middle leaders know the strengths of their staff & deploy them accordingly. More tailored support for different groups of learners has been a really big & positive change. Thank you! The Headteacher has a clear vision for the school & her ambition for it to continue to make improvements is shared by her senior team & staff.

Dear Y6 parents

Dear Y6 Parents/Carers,

Firstly thank you to all parents who bought in their Y6 children to school this morning. It was lovely to see all the smiling faces- we have missed you all very much!

Overall, it was a very smooth and happy start to term 6. The new entry system of through the car park worked well. I also appreciated each bubble group coming in at their allotted time. This ensured that there was a steady stream of children and parents walking towards the drop off/ pick up point- all socially distancing.

The children were obviously a little nervous at first but were clearly excited to be back to see their friends. Although the school was not as they would have remembered it, they took on board the regular necessities of hand washing, sanitising and keeping 2m apart. They relaxed quickly into their routines and enjoyed being back with their teachers, friends and learning.

I have had some requests from other Y6 parents wanting their child to start attending tomorrow. The answer is no. We will be sending a text out every Tuesday to Y6 parents not currently attending but wishing to start the following week. If you want your child to start attending, please reply to this text message (MOB: 07540686882) by 5pm on Wednesday. Your child will start from the following Monday. We need this time to organise the additional classrooms, resources and staffing for the extra bubbles. Please remember that the provision is Monday to Thursday.

For example, a text has gone out this morning to Y6 parents. If you want your child to attend (from Monday 15th June) please reply (MOB: 07540686882) with your child’s name by 5pm on the Wednesday. If you are keeping your child at home, please do not reply.

Please do not turn up at the school wanting your child to start immediately. This will to be possible.

Thank you for your understanding with this and we look forward to see more year 6 children in the coming weeks.
