Diary of the week:


Welcome back to the second half of the autumn term; I cannot actually believe it’s November already. I promise not to mention the ‘C’ word just yet.


The week started a lot chillier than when we broke up, but the sun shone and it was lovely to see so many refreshed faces back in the playground as school reopened at the beginning of the week. The children returned to school in a smart, positive manner and the atmosphere on Monday morning really was one of gusto. After spending two days in school over the holidays, it really was great to have everyone back to fill the building with enthusiasm and a buzz for learning.


Thank you to everyone, who attended parents’ evening this week. It was lovely to see so many of you and chat with you informally about your child’s experiences in school and to hear how well they are getting on. I did not have to have one negative conversation and that was heart-warming at the end of a long day. I hope you found the termly report informative and useful and that you heard messages that will help you to support your child over the next term.


In addition, thank you to everyone who has purchased books this week. We managed to sell hundreds of pounds worth of books and the commission from this really helps us to stock the shelves with new books in school. Thank you very much!


A reminder that next week, there will be the EYFS and KS1 disco on Tuesday and the KS2 disco on Wednesday. Both discos have a ‘neon’ theme and finish at 5pm. Thanks to ‘The Greasley Hub’ for putting so much time and effort into the selling of the tickets this week. MASSIVE thanks also to Oliver, in year 5, who helped his mum to find names on register lists and locate classes; sell tickets and work out change and provide tickets to his customer. He was a ‘life saver’ and a ‘star’. Thank you so much, Oliver.


Next week, in our staff meeting, we will starting to focus on the school vision. I am very excited to see what this will begin to look like over time. In the Spring term, we will also be taking views from all stakeholders in a view to relaunch a new school vision and fresh outlook of Greasley Beauvale Primary School. Remember that you can tell us about your thoughts about school using parent view as we really do value your opinion:


Take care and have a super weekend. Keep safe during these darker nights, and during bonfire night, and remember keep warm and dry.


Warm regards,

Mrs Bates
