Head Teacher's Blog

Week Ending 3rd May 2019


This week, the following children have received a Head Teacher’s Award:


Isla – Red 1 – for fantastic subtraction using a number line. Isla worked especially hard to make sure that her numbers were the correct way around. Super news!


Denny – Red 1 – For blowing Mrs Barrowcliffe’s socks off by being on fire and being able to independently use a number line to subtract his numbers. He has been a maths magician this week.


Lucy - Violet 2 – For her imaginative presentation of the Judeo-Christian creation story. She’d paid extra attention to her illustrations and the results are great.


Positive praise home is as follows:


As I communicated last week, we had the BBC Midlands Today crew in on Monday doing some filming around our work on climate change and recycling.

I was very proud of Miss Marvin and her years 6s, and Mrs Wright and her Rainbow Planet Protectors.

I received an email following the filming from Nav, the BBC reporter...


I just wanted to say a big thank you to your staff and the children for being so accommodating. It was great to see how much effort has gone into teaching the kids about their role in protecting the planet and the importance of fighting climate change…

The report was broadcasted throughout the day on Wednesday and the 6.30pm bulletin was the full-length version. I was an incredibly proud Head teacher, whilst watching the bulletin, as the children spoke confidently and clearly about their role in climate change. I think the bulletin showed the school in a very positive light and we hope you enjoyed the viewing also.

Thanks once again to the children and staff, but also one of our year 3 parents for putting our school forward for this report.


Have a great bank holiday weekend everyone, and I look forward already to another super week next week.


Warm regards,

Michelle Bates
