2018-2019

Term  6
This year has gone so quickly and we have arrived at Term 6.  We have a busy term ahead of us and lots of activities that involve parents.  There is a new to reception parents meeting next week where we will welcome our new children and parents to the school.  This year we have decided to have our Transition meeting with parents before the end of term instead of September.  This means parents will have all the information they need for their children's move to the next year group.  
Teachers are busy writing your child's school report  which will be out in July.  
I am hoping it stops raining so we can have our planned sports days.  Some exciting news is that we have an  Olympian in badminton  teaching our children this term.  We have a new dance teacher delivering lessons alongside our teachers. 
The year 6 production is well under way.  
Some of our children will be representing our school in a STEM  science competition.  Thank you to year 5 for planning and delivering the science investigation and Miss Woolgar for preparing them for the event. 
Most exciting of all we have our Kit Car competition and this year some children will be racing at Goodwood.  
In September I will be no longer supporting Harlands as they have a new Headteacher.   It will be lovely to be back in Manor full time.

Assembly Themes  - Term 6
 

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 focused on 

CHANGES 

supporting transition 



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.  


 DON'T FORGET WOWs

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.
