Emmie and Ella - Yellow 2 – For effort and enthusiasm when writing instructions to catch a fire giant! They both used a letter mat to independently form letters correctly . Well done!



Another super week in school. Children are beginning to recover well and extend their learning during their time in school. Teachers are really starting to gauge the impact of the third lockdown and assess what is essential for their year group as we settle into our 'new norm'. Teaching is targeted around filling gaps, clear interventions where needed and ensuring that children feel happy and safe.


It was nice to send a 'normal' email today about PE kit reminders and we haven't had to mention 'covid' in a while, which shows there is some light at the end of the tunnel. We are all being safe, but it is nice to start thinking about the future of the school and where we want to develop and improve. 


Our school improvement plan/priorities (SIP) this year centre around:


1) Mental Health and Wellbeing for everyone 

2) Academic recovery following the pandemic, lockdowns and bubble closures

3) Embedding a whole school strategy for blended learning that secures a continuation of the schools curriculum (if and when needed!) 


The SIP has been reviewed this week and along with other consultations, we have evidence that the school is going in the right direction and continuing to go from strength to strength. 


Next week, I will be reviewing and re-writing the new vision, aims and values statement based on views from stakeholders (including the children). I look forward to sharing this with you soon.


Today was Red Nose Day and thanks for all your support and donations. School raised £287.80 and what a great cause to send that money to.


Thank you everyone and take care.


Warmest regards,


Mrs Bates
