28/4/2020 Telephone CallsPublished 28/04/20Read More
To further support you during this unusual time, we are asking Class Teachers to telephone each family approximately once a fortnight.
The purpose of this call is simply to ‘check in’ with you, allowing some continuity of contact, for you as a family, with the school, whilst your child is unable to attend.
It’s not to discuss progress, or to check up on work completed, it is simply to maintain some semblance of contact with you, hopeful aiding a smooth transition once we return to more normal schooling.
The Class Teachers will aim to speak to the families of half the class per week, on a rolling program. If the Class Teachers are unable to contact you, they will leave a message and/or try again another day.
I would ask that you help to keep the phone calls relatively short, perhaps to approximately ten minutes.
It is not necessary for the Class Teacher to speak to your child, however, if you particularly want your child to have an opportunity to say hello to their Class Teacher, it is of course okay to do so.
With best wishes,
Closure Landing PagePublished 03/04/20Read More
For ease of use, we have temporarily repurposed one of our pages so that it is the central place for you to look for information while the school is closed.
The link is on the right hand side of the Home page button, at the top of the screen and is titled 'Closure'.
Here we will post information about the closure as we get, as well as having easy access to the class pages on the right hand side.
This will also be where you need to look to find Mrs Singh's assemblies.
Wishing you a happy Easter,
Today's Assembly 26.2.2020Published 26/02/20Read More
This morning I led an assembly with the children about the Coronavirus.
The aim of the assembly was to explain some of the facts about the virus and to reassure them that there are steps we can take to mitigate the risk of contracting it.
I used information that has been sent to schools from Public Health England to create a Power Point presentation, to structure the assembly.
I spent time discussing with the children, good practises with regard to coughing, sneezing and hand hygiene.
I reiterated to the children that if they need to cough or sneeze, they should follow the NHS guidelines of ‘Catch it, bin it, kill it.’
The children should cough or sneeze into a tissue, dispose of the tissue and then wash their hands.
If this is not possible, they should cough/sneeze into the crook of their bent arm, into their elbow or their hands, rather than coughing or sneezing into the air.
I then discussed how best to wash our hands and played the children an NHS video clip about good hand hygiene.
Please see the attached slide show to see the presentation that I used in today’s assembly.
With best wishes,
14.2.2020 Website alterationsPublished 14/02/20Read More
Over the next few weeks, I will be looking at our website in order to streamline it, for ease of use.
Please do not worry if you temporarily see changes to the placement of pages or duplication of pages etc, the changes will be due to me trialling different approaches to how we display the information.
With thanks for your understanding,
Happy Christmas!Published 20/12/19Read More

14/10/2019 Parent ViewPublished 14/10/19Read More
Many of you will be familiar with Ofsted’s ‘Parent View’ questionnaire, which we ask you to complete annually.
To reflect changes in the new Ofsted Framework, Ofsted have updated their questionnaire.
We would be incredibly grateful if you could spend a few minutes completing this, giving us valuable feedback for the school.
We would particularly appreciate your time in completing the questionnaire if your child is having an overall positive experience at school.
Parents are often keen to give feedback, in order to affect change. However, the positive comments are often missed, as parents do not always feel it is necessary to give them
Please follow the below link to the questionnaire
As always, if you have any thoughts regarding things that you would like us to consider for improvement, please do make an appointment to Mrs Singh or Mr Watts, or alternatively catch them at the gate each morning.
