Term  4
Term 4 is almost at the end.  It has been a short but busy term.  We were all amazed by the wonderful performances of our Foundation Stage children in their pantomime.  
Another busy term where the children have really enjoyed their learning and shown this in their books and their Friday assemblies.  One of the highlights was World Book Day which was very well supported. The children took part in lots of competitions and events. 
The wooden spoon competition was so hard to judge as we had 150 brilliant entries.  Thank you everyone.  

Highlights to look forward to this term 

Foundation Stage Production 

Parent Workshops 

Phonics Club 

World Book Day 
Purple Day for Epilepsy 

Red Nose Day 

"Everyone Matters, Everyone Helps, Everyone Succeeds." 

Assembly Themes  - Term 4 

We are continuing to explore news events linked to British values in some of our assemblies across the term.  Picture News will have a current news focus every two weeks.  We share this with you so the children can discuss the issues with you. 

 Each week we are also focusing on a key learning skill.  

Our themes this term are: 


Learning Skills – Perseverance, Empathy and Listening 

School Improvement Plan 

As part of our School Improvement focus we will be working on the area identified by OFSTED in November 2017

       teaching extends and deepens pupils’ learning consistently well across the curriculum, particularly for the most able (OFSTED)

Our main School Improvement objectives are:

To improve outcomes for all children through rigorous

and ambitious expectations that enable the school to

achieve excellent outcomes in teaching and learning

To develop leadership at all levels in the pursuit of

excellence in all we do in school and beyond in our

local partnerships

Governors to develop their strategic roles in school

and within the Alliance of schools (Alliance)

Through effective implementation of a rich and relevant

curriculum there is improved outcomes for children and

an excitement about learning

To continue to improve outcomes in writing and spelling

To continue to improve outcomes at High/GD in Reading, Maths

and Writing by the end of Foundation Stage/KS1/KS2  

Our school improvement priorities this term are  maths  and mental health and well being 

Our next Parent Forum meeting will be focused on Mental Health and Well being -date to be confirmed 

I hope you are enjoying MARVELLOUS ME.  It is a wonderful resource to celebrate our children and their learning.  We will be asking for feedback in our questionnaire this term.  


WOW forms are available to download here or from the entrance lobby. Your response has been so wonderful we need to create a bigger board to display them all. We want to continue to celebrate all of your child's achievements in and out of school.   

Thank you.
