Head Teacher's Blog

Week Ending 28th February 2020


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


Samardeep – Yellow 1 – For her fantastic cold write for instructions. She took her time to check her sentences for spellings and punctuation. Super use of time connectives


Jake – Yellow 1 - For his fantastic effort and improvement in his handwriting. He is now using joining letters whenever he writes. Super improvement – keep it up!



Current attendance results are as follows:


1st place goes to yellow 1 and Indigo 2 for 100% attendance.

2nd place goes to Blue 2 for 99.6% attendance.



Welcome back to the Spring term everyone. I can’t quite believe that we are already half way through the academic year. The children have settled well and we have had a good week settling back into the spring term ‘Explore’ topics. I have enjoyed spending time in classrooms this week and looking through the books. The children are making some effective progress and we are proud of the developments we are making to our own version of the National Curriculum. It also looks like you as parents and carers are impressed too. Take a look at the results of the survey we sent out to you all before half term:


Thank you to everyone who contributed to the results of the survey. We had almost 140 responses and overall the results were extremely positive. We are proud of the subject offers in place and the way in which we organise the knowledge and skills for the children to be taught and develop over time.


In addition, we are very proud of our sporting success this week:


A huge well done to this year's Greasley Beauvale swim team! 


Miss Marvin, Mr Smith and Mrs Poxon took 17 of our KS2 children to this year's gala, and each and every one of them made a fantastic effort, made even more impressive by the fact that a number of our children had never swam in a gala before! There were some nail-biting neck and neck sprint finals, an exciting Canon Relay (where we came a close second!) and some fun races too. A special mention to Brooklyn and Abigail who won the Year 5 Boy's Backstroke and Year 3/4 Girl's Backstroke races!


We are so proud of each and every member of our team - they all made a fantastic effort, represented our school brilliantly and should be exceptionally proud of themselves. We're already looking forward to next year!


Remember that next Thursday is World Book Day and the children can dress as a book-related character or come in their bedtime reading PJs. We will have fun with books throughout the day and develop a love of reading in the process. I can’t wait already!


Have a great weekend everyone. Let's hope for some sunshine and dry weather!


Warm regards,


Michelle Bates
