Whole School update - 16th July 2021

This term we welcomed the exciting news that Mrs Crocker will be taking up the reins as our new Head of School in September. Her official title is the Executive Teaching Head of School, otherwise known as ETHOS, how wonderfully appropriate! We are also pleased to announce that Mr Maisey will be joining our team for one day a week, teaching both classes to cover PPA time for Mr Harnett and Miss Suchacki.

We are coming to the end of a very busy and hectic term. We would like to thank you all for your support, encouragement and patience over the past year (and before too, of course!). It is really appreciated by us all. The school is in a good place (6 new children have joined us since Easter) and we are looking forward to going from strength to strength next year in the hope and expectation that OFSTED and SIAMS will visit, at some point, and recognise all the hard work and effort that is poured into the school each week. We can’t wait, hopefully, to invite you all to Friday afternoon’s Collective Worship so that you can see for yourselves all that has been going on.

The end of the summer term is always tinged with sadness as we say goodbye to our Year 6 children. This year, we only have two Year 6s, Maisie and Alice, but they have been a wonderfully reliable and trustworthy pair, always showing kindness and consideration to their fellow pupils and always modeling good manners. We wish them all the very best as they prepare to  move on to secondary school and we want them to know that they will always be in our hearts and will be welcome back to visit us at any time. This year, we also say goodbye to Pippa and Dylan as they move to their new school. We hope they will stay in touch and let us know how they are doing.

Finally, we hope you have a wonderful summer and enjoy some precious family time. We look forward to seeing you again in September.

News from the Trust

As we race towards the finish line of this very unique academic year, our schools have still been a hive of activity with sports days, school trips and much more, all following covid guidance and restrictions.  We would like to thank all those involved in the planning, preparation and facilitation of these activities for our pupils. We would also like to thank our parents, carers and local communities for your understanding of the changes that had to be made to ensure everyone’s safety.  Although parents and carers were unable to be there in person, all our schools are delighted to share some fabulous pictures from these events on Social Media and our school websites so please check these out. Throughout the year there have been a plethora of good news stories across all our schools.  Our children have benefitted from health weeks, winter wonderlands, art exhibitions, special community contacts, fundraising, returning to church school status, a new school joining ( a special welcome to Stockland C of E Primary Academy), forest school activities and art projects.  In a year that has been so changeable we have been immensely proud of all the achievements and activities that our staff have managed to organise.   The Trust would like to offer a fond farewell to our year 6’s.  It’s been a pleasure to see you flourish and develop and we wish you well on your journey to secondary school.   As this is our last newsletter of the school year, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their hard work through what has been a very busy, certainly different and sometimes difficult year, we wish you all a very happy and relaxing summer break.  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News

News from the Trust

Dear Parents and Carers The first half of the summer term is the shortest of all the school terms but this year has been one of our most important. For our children settling back into school routines and experiencing both renewed friendship and renewed learning has been our greatest priority. Whilst this has of course come with some anxieties for adults and children alike we are so proud of how your children have settled back into school life. I am sure, like you, we are yearning for greater freedoms and we trust that the Government will feel able to keep to the proposed timetable. In building back together, and hopefully building back stronger from our shared experiences over the last 15 months, we perhaps realise even more the importance of connections and relationships that we have missed during this time. Perhaps we will never take for granted the simple act of hugging friends and family ever again. As a Trust of nine schools we belong to an organisation called the Confederation of School Trusts. This enables us to share and learn with thousands of schools up and down the country. At a recent on-line conference Kate Green OBE, Shadow Secretary of State, delivered an important message:  “Schools are one of the only public services that will touch all of our lives; they are one of the most powerful means we have to shape the life chances of every child and the life of every community.” We absolutely agree with this statement and every day in as many ways as we can we support your children to be the very best they can be in character, in attitude, and in their learning. I hope you all enjoy the half term break and fingers crossed for some sunshine!        Sue Rogers    DCEO, TRLP  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
Bikeability - Year 6 Posted on: 5/05/2021

Bikeability - Year 6

Y6 Bikeablility On Wednesday the 28th of April, Y6 did Bikeability. It was really fun, we learnt lots of new things that we had never done before. We talked about what you need to know to be safe and then before we started to ride our bikes we did a bike check to make sure our bikes were safe to ride on the road. We tested our brakes that controlled the back and front wheel, to make sure that they stopped the bike properly. Then we made sure that the wheels were pumped up properly. In the morning we went on the playground and went around the cones, making sure we had control of our bike. Lastly we checked the chain was on properly. Then we practised u turns, looking back and seeing what number our instructor, who was called Graham, was holding up and we also took our hands off the handlebars to use hand signals to tell drivers where you are going. By this point we had finished level 1. Each time, before we went on the road, we did a bike check. We went out of the school and onto the road to do the next activity. First we went down the road and did u turns on the proper road. Our instructor said a rhyme to help us to stay away from cars in case they opened their door. “A car door and a bit more or you’ll end up on the floor.”  After that we went on a busier road and practised more u turns and where on the road to stop when there is a car. We did different circuits in different places practising u turns and making sure to look before we did. We also made sure to look in driveways.   Then we went to an even busier road! We practised u turns once more there but each time we had to wait for so many cars!  Lastly we got to an even trickier part, we had to guess where the t in the road was. It was hard but we managed to do it.  Now we had completed level 2.  We came back to school and Graham said we passed! We really liked Bikeability and wish we could do it again.   By Alice and Maisie  Categories: 1 CategorySchool News
