We have been blessed with some lovely weather this week.  The Early Years Sports on Monday was very well attended and the children enjoyed the range of sporting activities very much.  We hope you enjoyed the event as much as the children.

The weather was rather dreary on Tuesday  but we managed to hold our KS2 Sports Day at the first attempt; this hasn’t happened for many years!  All the boys and girls participated enthusiastically and tried their hardest.  There were some truly excellent performances,  in both track and field.  Very well done to all the children.

The Governing Body have considered the results of the recent parental survey on School Photography.  There were only seventeen responses in total and so the Governors decided this was not a sufficiently large  response to implement change.  However, parental views from the responses received has been fed back to the current photography service provider.  In addition, a satisfaction survey will be undertaken with parents after each round of photographs.  This will enable Governors to make the most fully informed decision in the future.

Our Attendance level continues to do very well.  The current school attendance for the year is 96.7%.  This is the highest ever at this time of year.  Thank you for your continued support in ensuring your child/children attend school as much as possible.

The Parent Forum met for the second time yesterday.  This initiative has been very helpful in promoting dialogue between home and school.  The focus of yesterday’s meeting was looking at progression in pupil work from Nursery to Year 6 and also looking at National Test papers.  We also had a discussion about school funding and budget pressures.

Next week is Half Term.  We hope the weather remains fine and you enjoy a fantastic break with your children.
