Headteacher's Welcome

As your child may have told you, I have been busy recording a series of short videos to publish on our website for prospective parents and their children to view.  It has been an absolute pleasure to wander round school and capture so many examples of high quality learning taking place in every classroom.  I have been asking some of the children to talk about school life; it has been a joy to hear about how happy they are in school and what they feel makes our school special. They have been brilliant! We are hoping to publish them on the website ready to share with the wider community next week. Whichever year group your child is in, I am sure you will  enjoy taking a closer look at what's been going on behind our closed doors this term.

The videos are coming soon to a screen near you!


Notes from the Teachers

Parents evening phone calls have taken place this week for some classes. Teachers have commented on how lovely it has been to chat to parents - part of the job they have really missed this term!

See below for the timetable for next week. Please email your child's class teacher if you need to request a specific time. There are a very small number of parents who teachers have been unable to get hold of. If you  missed your call this week but would like to speak to your child's class teacher please ring school. 



                                                     PTA Update 

NGIS tea towel and bag sale!
Support our school and buy a beautiful tea towel with your child's self portrait on! Given restrictions, fundraising opportunities are limited this year, so this is a perfect way to support the school.
This week your child has been drawing their self portrait ready to be printed onto a school tea towel. The tea towels are a wonderful keepsake (as well as being practical!) and look terrific with all the childrens' portraits on.
We only produce the tea towels once every two years so don't miss out! Look out for an order form in your child's school bag next week.
We are also producing tote bags with the school logo on and you will be able to order these using the same form. This year, because of circumstances, everything needs to be pre-ordered and paid for in advance.




Rudolph Christmas Cards! 

Just a reminder that if you are interested in the Rudolph Christmas Cards and other products, the deadline to return your completed design to school (and make your payment to the PTA) is Thursday 22nd October.

Speaking from experience last year, we were delighted with the quality of the cards, teddies and mugs we purchased.  We also raised a considerable amount of money for the school by taking part. 

Please take a look at the links below for further information.
