Ofsted Inspection Tuesday 19th September
Monday, September 18, 2017

If you are a registered parent or carer of a pupil at the school (including pupils on sick leave or who are temporarily excluded), you can tell Ofsted your views about the school by completing Ofsted's online survey, Parent View, at: www.parentview.ofsted.gov.uk.  You will need to cut and paste this link into your browser.
The deadline is 12 noon on Tuesday.
Pupils can complete
online pupil questionnaire at the following link: ofsted.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/Pupil/10034467

Your views are really important to us and, will help inspectors understand your experience of school. The questionnaire will close at 11am on 19 September 2017, to give the inspector time to look at the results. The questionnaires work in Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer 11, and on mobiles and tablets when you copy and paste the link into the browser.

The Class Ambassadors did an amazing job organising last week's book sale to raise money for outdoor play equipment.  The toys and books that you all sent in for them were of such good quality that they raised £113.10.  Thank you for your support and well done to the children! 

Rights Respecting School Award
Rights Respecting School Award
Monday, May 08, 2017
We are about to start a very exciting journey to become a Rights Respecting School.  Using the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child as our guide, we plan to embed these values in daily school life.   The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of the school and we believe it will help us continue to create a safe and inspiring place to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive.  The Rights Respecting Schools Award will help us embed these values in our school and give children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.  We are going to set up a Steering Group to represent all parts of the school community and would like any interested parents to get involved.  We will be holding a meeting next Thursday 11th May at 3.15 pm, so please come along if you are interested! Our Class Ambassadors have been invited.

Children in Key Stage Two were asked to invent something useful for homework recently.  They had  a lot of great ideas, including robots which could clean, cook and make pizza!  We also had an app for finding lost pets, a handy portable warfarin kit and gloves which can spell and calculate for you.  This picture is of an oven which will cook anything you ask it to!
