As you are aware the school received a two day inspection from Ofsted during the last few weeks of term. I am pleased to announce that the school remains good in all areas! The report has been published online today and you can follow the link on the school website to read the full report. I would like to say a massive thank you to the children, parents, staff and governors for their achievements in working together to ensure that all children have an excellent start in their education.
From Year 1 onwards children have been set up with online homework. We now have TT Rock stars which in an online multiplication tool where children have the opportunity to win points as they learn their multiplications. We continue to run Mathletics across school where the teachers set maths homework related to what the children are learning in class. As the term progresses we will be giving out certificates for homework completed. Your child will have their own personalised passwords to log on, these will be placed in the back of your child’s reading diary before the end of the week.
Year 6 children were given an envelope today regarding their application to secondary
school. Applications must be made by 31st Oct 2018. Please ask at the school office if you have any queries regarding this process.
Would you please pay in advance at the beginning of each week & please ensure the money is in a named sealed envelope.
