Headteacher’s Message – 12.01.18

Welcome back!
Your children have returned to school after the Christmas break with positive, enthusiastic attitudes and have settled down to some great learning this week.
Our school value for this half-term is Friendship. We will be talking to pupils about the qualities and characteristics that make a good friend as well as discussing the importance of friends in our lives. Friendship will be the theme of assemblies and circle time activities and staff will be on the look-out for pupils seen demonstrating this value.
Our programme of parent workshops continues on January 23rd with a focus on PSHE and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE). We would encourage parents to attend this session to find out what RSE your child is taught at different stages of their school career and what policy changes are coming into effect during the next year.
Our full programme of after school clubs starts next week. We would welcome any feedback on the new booking system so that we can further improve this process for next term.
On Tuesday January 30th we will be visited by a Team GB athlete who will be leading an inspirational assembly as well as pupil workshops. To support Team GB as well as raise money for school PE equipment, later this month, we will be running a sponsored challenge for all pupils to take part in. More information will follow next week.
Enjoy a lovely weekend.
