Dear Parents

‘Let no one steal your dreams

Let no one tear apart

The burning ambition

That fires the drive inside your heart’.

Today we said goodbye to our Year 6 children as they graduated from Primary school.  It was lovely to see the children dressed up for this event with their individualised mortar boards which clearly reflected the children’s characters.  There were a few tears and poignant memories read out by the  children.  The Year 6 teachers, Mr Higgins and Mr O’Brien spoke about the adventure the children had undertaken whilst being in the Year Group, their learning experience and the memories they will take with them and hopefully store away for the future.  My message was about staying focused and not allowing hurdles or negative comments to hinder personal progress. Resilience and determination were the key messages.  We are extremely proud of our Year 6 and their outstanding achievements.  We wish them much success and happiness for the future.

As we move towards the final week of term, teachers are preparing for our Art Week focus.  This year, our Art Week theme is community.  The work from this week will be displayed on our boards in September.  Whilst the teachers are busy in the classrooms, we are currently finalising our start of term timetable and induction days.  The children will start back on 10th September with our new Year 6 children showing parents and children to their classrooms.  We plan to host meetings for parents in the first week when there will be an opportunity for parents to meet the team of teachers and Learning Assistants and find out more about classroom procedures and expectations. At the start of October, there will be ‘Class in Action’ morning when parents can see their children in operation.  Later in the month, we plan to take our parents back in time, to their own school days, when parents will be invited to attend Maths and English lessons where strategies and concepts will be taught.  This should be a fun, informative experience for our parents.  We have many more events lined up for the next academic year and hope to further develop our relationship between home and school. 

Many parents are asking about the new school uniform.  The uniform won’t be ready until the end of August.  Therefore, we are planning to have some pop up shops on the 3 campuses.  Once the dates have been confirmed I will be in touch.  The uniform will be accessible for parents before the Eid break.

On behalf of all the children and staff, have a wonderful weekend.

Kind regards,

 

Karen Wilson

Head of Campus
