This Week's News


June 11th 2021

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a fantastic half term holiday last week and made the most of the glorious weather we have been experiencing recently! It has been lovely to see you all happy and learning back in school! I can’t believe this is our last half term together before we break up for the summer! We are excited to make this term the best yet.

We are hoping that our beloved Mr O’Brien will be back in school next week! I know lots of parents have been asking about him and passing on their well wishes. Thank you kindly for this. We are hoping that we can spend his last few weeks before his official retirement together as a school family.

Year 6 will now have a big focus on activities that support them in their transition to high school. Miss Elliott is planning lots of sessions that promote resilience and maturity and we hope that these sessions help Year 6 when they are thinking about the changes ahead of them in their school life.

Unfortunately, Covid restrictions are still in place and we are unable to hold our usual summer term activities in the same manner. We really are looking forward to when restrictions are fully lifted. Until then, please can I remind everyone to follow our risk assessments. Parents and carers should still be wearing masks at drop off and collection times please!

It has been wonderful seeing so many children riding their bikes, scooting and walking to school. Now that we have this wonderful weather, why not make the most of it and leave the car at home. This will really help to support the issues we have been having with parking. As we are an inner-city school, we are limited in terms of our parking arrangements and we need parents to support us as best they can.

It has been lovely seeing some children in our new school uniform! Well done to those who are wearing the correct PE uniform too! Don’t forget, our new uniform can be purchased via the link below.

Overall, whole school attendance in the past week was 96.45%. The lowest attenders were Year 5, with 91.67%. The best attenders this week were Year 2 with a super 99.29%. Since September, whole school attendance stands at 95.92%.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Take care.
