Week Commencing 1st April 2019

I trust that Mums and Carers have enjoyed a special Mothering Sunday.

Doubtless we will begin the week with practical jokes being played on us as we are in school on April 1st. I am sure staff will be aware that they are likely to be ‘April Fools’ as we go through the morning.

On a more serious note this week is Revision Week and sees us preparing children for the forthcoming examinations during the week commencing 29th March.

On Monday The EYFS department have a Farm Visit and I know from conversations I have had with some of the children that they are looking forward to going to the farm and seeing the animals.On Monday Miss Gerrard is attending Mental Health/Well Being Training.

On Tuesday we have our first Parents Evening commencing after school. This is the first of three Parents Evenings also taking place Wednesday and Thursday. If you have not already made an appointment, please contact the School Office in order to do so.

On Wednesday I will be visiting Trentham Academy where we are continuing to form links and learning opportunities. This year we have several pupils who will be joining the school in September.

On Thursday Mr Hood is attending Safeguarding Training in his role as Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
Our Cross Country team will be competing at Trentham Academy on Thursday.

On Friday Prep 3 will be leading Lenten activities. During the morning the whole school has the opportunity to have a time of reflection as we continue our journey through Lent.

‘Every day is an Open Day’, please make an appointment to view the school.
