Headteacher's Welcome

We have had a fabulous first full week back in school. The new Reception children are settling so well and Year 1 and Year 2 have got into new routines brilliantly. 

In school we have six School Values - these underpin our curriculum and our whole school ethos

We talk to the children about our Values regularly with a focus on one specific Value each half term which is a focus for our PSED (Personal, Social, Emotional Development) curriculum, assemblies and discussions in class. 

Our Values are:-

Respect     Kindness     Teamwork

 Perseverance      Honesty      Responsibility

This half term the focus is

We teach children to -

  • Respect each other and begin to understand that everyone is different and that this makes them special
  • Respect property by looking after things in school and home
  • Respect people by being kind and talking nicely to them

It is really useful if you can reinforce this message at home too through discussions with your child.

Thanks so much for all your support yesterday - a great turn out with lots sold - raising £177.81 for the school! 
We’d love to welcome as many faces as possible to our first meeting of the year - all very informal so feel free to pop in for all or part of it if you can. We’ll be chatting through initial ideas and plans - obviously with this term including exciting pre-Christmas activities for the kids! We’ll share more details soon.
If you’d like to find out more or if you need anything from us, please message us on

Notes from the Teachers 

Year 1 and 2 Parent Meetings

It was great to see some of you in school this week; we know that not everyone can make meetings during the school day. The information has been uploaded to the KS1 page - please take a look. If you have any further questions related to routines etc in your child's class please contact your child's class teacher. 

Year 1 Phonics Talk

This will take place next Wed 20th Sep at 9:00am. Please drop off your child as normal at the main gate between 8:40 and 8:55am. Once all of the children are in school and have been registered, parents will be invited to come in via the main gate to the hall. The meeting will last about 30 minutesInformation shared will be put onto the school website after the meetings.

Please do not expect an immediate response as teachers are teaching all day and are not expected to reply to emails during evenings and weekends. For a quick chat you can wait at the end of the day. For urgent messages please contact the school office.

Parent School Partnership 
There are lots of things that parents and carers can do do help us to keep our school a happy, safe place for everyone. 
Here are a few requests from us...
1) Please remember our school is a mobile free-zone - this means no phones should be used in the school grounds (this includes the playground). This is for safeguarding reasons.
2) What's App groups have been set up in many classes by parents- these are a great way to stay in touch, plan social events and remind each other of events that are taking place in school. Please do not use these to discuss any issues or concerns you have about school or things that have happened in school; please come and talk to us if you have any worries about anything. Whats App is not the appropriate forum to do this and it can end up causing unnecessary anxiety for parents. If you are not on the class What's App yet - chat to other parents at pick up and someone will be able to help. 
3) Dogs - we understand with busy lives combining the school run with a dog walk can be helpful, however we ask that you keep dogs away from the steps up to the main gate and the ramp up to Turtles classroom. However lovely your dog may be, some children are frightened and to them some of them feel very big!
4) Please ensure your child arrives on time (before 8:55am). Phonics is the first lesson of the day- this is where we teach your child to be an amazing reader! Being late is unsettling for your child and means they will miss very important learning too. 
5) Please read all communication that comes home - this will keep you informed about everything that is happening. 
6) Please read the Parent Guide for further useful information.

Dates for the Diary

Please see attached the Parent Calendar for this year. Please take a few minutes to take note of dates including INSET and holiday dates, Parents' Evenings, Parent workshops to find out about learning in school and performances.  

Notes about the calendar: 'Fourth Friday' - every 4th Friday that the children are in school parents will be invited into classrooms from when they open at 8:40am until when the bell rings at 8:55am (we have changed this from 'First Friday' due to diary clashes). Initially this will just be Y1 and Y2 classes whilst the new Reception children settle.
